The Other Half of the Truth: Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, A First-Hand Account of Slavery from a Woman’s Perspective

Abstract

While Frederick Douglass’ autobiography is a classic and offers an image of slavery based on the memories of a former slave, that image remains incomplete because it is centered on attributes and events seen as predominantly masculine. For a more thorough understanding of what slavery was for all, another perspective must be put forth: that of a woman and a mother. In order to achieve this, the paper will focus on Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs.
