But I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and in the end they will come away with great wealth. Genesis 15:13 and 14

Frederick Douglass was a man of his time and race, a leader and fighter against the irrational and inhuman treatment of the blacks. This narrative is one of the most influential among African-American books denouncing the Institution of Slavery. It was written in 1845, over fifty years after the narrative of the great son of Africa Olaudah Equiano (1797). Being a slave himself, the accounts Douglass narrates are very important as a primary source describing the endurances and tribulations he had suffered under the slavery of the Southern territories, especially in Maryland. His life was full of bitterness, grief and sorrow; but certainly he became a great man indeed...also against all odds.

They have left me a small farm, which, though not enough for my support, will with my own industry, be sufficient. For employment, to pass away the wintcv season, I have determined upon keeping a school for my neighbours' children. Tho. I heartily approve of your determination. Our mother Earth rewards, with peace and plenty, those, who cultivate her face; but loads, with anxious cares, those, who dig her bowels for treasure. The life you contemplate is favorable to the enjoyment of social happiness, improvement of the mind, and security of virtue; and the task of training the tender mind is an employment, that ought to meet the encouragement, the gratitude of every parent, and the respect of every child. dxf. Edw. I am pleased that you approve my choice. "Will you frankly ttll me your own? Tho. I will: my intention is to follow the inclination of my kind parents. It is their desire that I should be a preacher. Their other sons have taken to other callings; and they wish to see one of their children in the desk. If their prayers are answered, I shall be fitted for the important task. To my youth, it appears formidable; but others, with less advantages, have succeeded, and been blessings to society, and an honor to their profession. Edw. You have chosen the better part.

This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition combines the two most important African American slave narratives into one volume. Frederick Douglass's Narrative, first published in 1845, is an enlightening and incendiary text. Born into slavery, Douglass became the preeminent spokesman for his people during his life; his narrative is an unparalleled account of the dehumanizing effects of slavery and Douglass's own triumph over it. Like Douglass, Harriet Jacobs was born into slavery, and in 1861 she published Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, now recognized as the most comprehensive antebellum slave narrative written by a woman. Jacobs's account broke the silence on the exploitation of African American female slaves, and it remains crucial reading. These narratives illuminate and inform each other. This edition includes an incisive Introduction by Kwame Anthony Appiah and extensive annotations. From the Paperback edition.
