Core Division,
will
present her talk:
Motherhood-Identity-Freedom:
Harriet Jacobs’ Story”

Where
and when:

Morgan Room, Aiken Hall, 12:30

About this
discussion:

“Slavery is
terrible for men, but it is far more terrible for women.”

In
1861, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was published under the
pseudonym Linda Brent.  The narrative, which blends conventions of the
slave narrative, the 19th-century sentimental novel, and the American adventure
genre, is now considered the pre-eminent account of an enslaved woman’s life.
 This talk will introduce Harriet Jacobs, a smart, courageous woman whose
incredible yet little-known story vividly depicts the unique evils of slavery
women experienced.
