Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was written by Harriet Ann Jacobs and first published in 1861 under the pseudonym Linda Brent. The book is autobiographical in nature and documents Jacobs' life as a slave and how she manages to get freedom for herself and for her children. This story shows us the fisical struggles and sexual abuse that female slaves faced on plantations as well as their efforts to raise and protect their children when there was the fear of them being sold away.
