Our Nig : sketches from the life of a free Black by Harriet E Wilson( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
This seminal autobiographical novel, originally published in 1859, is believed to have been the first by an African-American woman. Harriet Wilson's compelling story describes the life of a mulatto girl who, after the death of her mother, is exploited first by a terrifying Northern family for whom she worked and then by an opportunistic husband. A classic of African-American literature, Our Nig has made an enduring contribution to understanding the lives of free blacks in the nineteenth century. A fascinating combination of slave narrative and sentimental novel, the story traces the hardships and suffering of Frado, who grows up as an indentured servant to a white family in Massachusetts and spends much of her destitute life wandering through New England. A clear and accurate account of race relations and perceptions of race in the antebellum North, Our Nig is essential reading for students of African-American history and culture

Our Nig is a classic of African American Literature that has proven to be an enduring contribution to our understanding of free blacks in the nineteenth century. Originally published in 1859, it was neglected for over a hundred years and is now the subject of renewed scholarly interest. A fascinating fusion of two literary modes of the nineteenth century--the sentimental novel and the slave narrative--Our Nig traces the trials and tribulations of Frado, a mixed-race girl who grows up as an indentured servant to a white Massachusetts family. And now, as new scholarship sheds light on the author's life, our appreciation for Our Nig is enhanced
An investigation of intellectual and non-intellectual variables as predictors of academic success of high risk college freshmen at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale by Harriet E Wilson( Archival Material )
3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
A study was conducted to investigate personal and intellectual variables of the special supportive services population at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and to determine reliable and valid predictors regarding the academic success of future applicants. A literature review of the development of compensatory programs and of studies that investigated predictive variables of academic success for high risk college students is presented. Forty high risk students were study subjects. Data on the students were subjected to a multiple regression analysis technique. The other variables were race, income, high school percentile rank, sex, and rankings received from an interview. The criterion employed was the overall grade point average of each subject. It was found that while other variables added significance to the criterion, act composite scores was the best overall predictor. (Sw)
