7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Harriet Jacob's life exemplifies the history of her people throughout the nineteenth century. The Harriet Jacobs Family Papers, composed of writings by Jacobs, her brother John S. Jacobs, and her daughter Louisa Matilda Jacobs, writings to them, and private and public writings about them, presents a unique angle of vision. Fueled by the conflict between the impluse of liberty inspiring American life and the institution of chattel slavery blighting that life, the papers collected here off new perspectives on nineteenth-century struggles against slavery, racism, and sexism. The Harriet Jacobs Family Papers is designed as a lasting contribution to the ongoing study of the ways in which these national struggles and the social conditions that gave rise to them have shaped our culture and continue to shape our lives

Harriet Jacobs a life by Jean Fagan Yellin ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[In this book, the author] recounts a harrowing existence. In this biography, [she] offer[s] picture of the world that inspired Incidents - a world where even after her escape north, Jacobs was harassed by her former owner and living under threat of recapture. Still, determined to "try and be useful in some way," she would not only go on to see her story's publication, but return south during the Civil War to establish a school for black refugees behind Union lines - all the while working to provide for her family. [This book] is not only the culmination of decades of groundbreaking scholarship, but a brilliant restoration of a representative life - one whose sorrows and triumphs reflect the history of the nineteenth century, from slavery to the Civil War to Reconstruction and beyond. -Dust jacket
