About This Book

 

Born into slavery, Harriet Jacobs has no rights—not even the right to marry the man she loves. 

Instead, she is faced with the demands of a master who believes he is entitled not only to her labor, but also to her body.  Only great courage, wit, and determination will allow Harriet to preserve her self-respect—and someday win her freedom.  This autobiography tells the true story of a remarkable woman.
