Summary

Mary Prince's 1831 book is one of the earliest narratives that revealed the ugly facts about slavery in the West Indies. The book begins with a brief description of her childhood, before recounting her adult experiences as a slave. Her strong spirit enabled her to survive and to take up the abolitionist cause.

Sorrowful but legendary

Thank you Mary Prince for sharing your life story. Generations for years to come will know the struggles and injustices of slavery. I am in awe of the strength and spirit of my people.
