schema:description"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."@en
