Whitney Plantation is proud to announce its first Virtual Book Club. Please join us in reading “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl” the autobiography of Harriet Jacobs.
Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl is one of the few autobiographical accounts of enslavement written by a woman. Harriet’s narrative chronicles her remarkable personal journey from a life of enslavement to her self-imposed confinement in her grandmother’s attic to escape her licentious master. Jacob’s memoir documents the horrors of slavery and exposes the hypocrisy of an abusive slavery system. Harriet’s undaunting faith and relentless courage delivers her to a life of liberty and reunion with her children in the North.
Over the next few weeks, we will post weekly questions for your contemplation, followed by a virtual book club on June 3rd at 6:00pm.
