In clear and unshrinking prose, Harriet Jacobs--writing under the pseudonym Linda Brent--relates the story of her girlhood and adolescence as a slave in North Carolina and her eventual escape: a bildungsroman set in the complex terrain of a sexist, white supremacist society. Resolutely addressing women readers rather than men, Incidents in the life of a slave girl seeks to make the reader understand how the threat of sexual violence shapes the lives of enslaved Black women and children. Equally brave and searing, Incidents in the life of a slave girl is a triumph of American literature, and the unflinching narrative that broke the silence on the psychosexual exploitation of Black women--Back cover.
