This text is a reprint of the 1861 first edition, with explanatory annotations and an introduction by Nellie Y. McKay and Frances Smith Foster." ""Contexts" includes contemporary responses to Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by William C. Nell and Lydia Maria Child, among others; twelve related letters and articles by Jacobs published in newspapers during the period from 1853 to 1868; and documents tracing Jacobs's life and achievements as a free woman, including her establishment of a school in Alexandria, Virginia."

McKay, Harryette Mullen, Michelle Burnham, Nell Irvin Painter, Frances Smith Foster, Sandra Gunning, Elizabeth V. Spelman, and Christina Accomando."
