Download Classic Slave Narratives Biblical History Of Blacks books, Masterful Genius Work 2 Books in One! From James Morris Webb, A.M. - "I have many objects in presenting this book to the public. First: I love my race regardless of the prejudice against her, the unenviable position she holds, and the things she is falsely said to be guilty of. I demonstrate my love for her by launching this book before the public as somewhat of a defense against the prejudice of ancient, as well as modern historical writers and lecturers, who have misrepresented her, and took from her the good deeds and honors that are justly due her." From Rev. J.J. Jackson, D.D. - "It is very essential that every race should possess a correct knowledge of its own past history. The masses of the American negro have been deprived of the opportunity of obtaining an adequate knowledge of the past history of the black man. The average historian has not considered the ancient history of the black man of sufficient importance to claim his attention. Even Mr. Myers would have the students of his general history believe that the black man has always been a hewer of wood and a drawer of water. A large majority of the men of letters of our own people who are very proficient in ancient, medieval, modern history of Greece and Rome, and even China, Japan and other European and Asiatic countries, know very little of the history of their own people." The Black Man: The Father of Civilization was written by James Morris Webb, A.M. and Published in 1919. History of the Black Man was written by Rev. J.J. Jackson, D.D. and Published in 1921.

by Charles J. Heglar, Rethinking The Slave Narrative Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rethinking The Slave Narrative books, The African American slave narrative is popularly viewed as the story of a lone male's flight from slavery to freedom, best exemplified by the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave (1845). But in stressing Douglass's narrative as a model for the genre, scholars have ignored the formal and thematic importance of marriage and family in the slave narrative. This book examines the central role of marriage in The Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb, an American Slave (1849) and Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom; or the Escape of William and Ellen Craft from Slavery (1860). In doing so, the volume points to the influence of those narratives on the later fiction of Douglass, William Wells Brown, and Martin Delany, and invites a reexamination of current assumptions about slave narratives.
by , Child Soldier Memoirs And The Classic Slave Narrative Tracing The Origins Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Child Soldier Memoirs And The Classic Slave Narrative Tracing The Origins books, ABSTRACT: Despite the centuries that divide them, there are striking parallels between the contemporary child soldier narrative and the antebellum Anglo-American slave narrative. Both are authored by writer-activists, often with the assistance of a (white) ghostwriter or editor. Both propagate a particular political/human rights agenda: to end slavery or the use of child soldiers. Both favour redemptive endings and often find themselves caught up in controversies over their veracity. This literary genealogy lends some legitimacy to the child soldier narrative as a genre, despite its very recent development. Slave narratives were initially dismissed and denigrated for not being real literature, but eventually became accepted as worthy of scholarly attention. In this article, I compare child soldier memoirs by Ishmael Beah, Emmanuel Jal, Senait Mehari, China Keitetsi and Grace Akallo to the four slave narratives deemed 'classic' by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.: those of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs, Mary Prince, and Olaudah Equiano.
by Solomon Northup, Voices Of Freedom Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Voices Of Freedom books, Four of the most important and enduring American slave narratives together in one volume. Until slavery was abolished in 1865, millions of men, women, and children toiled under a system that stripped them of their freedom and their humanity. Much has been written about this shameful era of American history, but few books speak with as much power as the narratives written by those who experienced slavery firsthand. The basis for the film of the same name, Twelve Years a Slave is Solomon Northup’s heartrending chronicle of injustice and brutality. Northup was born and raised a freeman in New York State—until he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the Deep South. Before returning to his family and freedom, he suffered smallpox, the overseer’s lash, and an attempted lynching. Perhaps the most famous of all slave chronicles, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass immediately struck a chord with readers when it was first released in 1855. After escaping to freedom, Douglass became a well-known orator and abolitionist, drawing on his own experiences to condemn the evils of slavery. One of the few female slave narratives, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was originally published under a pseudonym by Harriet Jacobs. After she escaped to freedom in North Carolina, where she became an abolitionist, Jacobs described the particular suffering of female slaves, including sexual harassment and abuse. Published in 1850, The Narrative of Sojourner Truth is Truth’s landmark memoir of her life as a slave in upstate New York and her transformation into a pioneer for racial equality and women’s rights. These narratives serve as a timeless testament to the strength and bravery, and as a voice to the millions of people enslaved in this dark period of American history.
