A Book to Read and Love - Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl - Harriet Ann Jacobs

 


A short summary of Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl:

The autobiography of Harriet Ann Jacobs, enslaved woman.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Cruelty is contagious in uncivilized communities."


Questions to ponder while reading Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl:

Is beauty a curse?

Could you marry a man like that?

My thoughts about the book:

A heartbreaking read.

I can't believe how many people participated in this evil.

One of the best books from an enslaved perspective.
