    Audio Book, Harriet Jacobs ~Survivor of Slavery, Abolitionist and Author

    in Education

    The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com is pleased to present to you the audio book of Harriet Jacobs, an African American abolitionist! Mrs. Jacobs  became active in the antislavery movement, and at the urging of several female abolitionists, she wrote “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl,” which was published in 1860. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, is a powerful depiction of the sexual abuse of female slaves. 

    Harriet Jacobs would thwart repeated sexual advancements made by slavers for years, then escape to the North. She would later publish an account of her anguished life in her autobiography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.


    Harriet had previously asked Norcom for permission to marry a free black man. Norcom had violently refused. Now Harriet had a plan to disrupt his fight for sexual conquest: She had become friends with a caring white man -- an unmarried lawyer. She would become sexually involved with this man, become pregnant, and an infuriated Norcom would sell her and her child. 

    A child was conceived.  The harassment continued even after she bore the lawyer another child. Finally, after she learned that Norcom was preparing to put her children to work as plantation slaves, she had had enough. In June of 1835, after seven years of mistreatment, Harriet escaped.

    Harriet was actively involved with the abolition movement before the launch of the Civil War. During the war she used her celebrity to raise money for black refugees. After the war she worked to improve the conditions of the recently-freed slaves.

    in Education

    Audio Book Henry Bibb,  Part 2 self-liberated  newspaper founder, The Voice!

    Author and Newspaper Owner, Henry Bibb a self-liberated black man gained his freedom in 1837. However he returned to Kentucky to try and rescue his wife and daughter. On the first attempt, he was recaptured and his whole family was sold south to a Mississippi plantation owner.  

    They escaped together, but were set upon by wolves and recaptured. Henry managed to get away again, but despite all his efforts, could not free his beloved Malinda and their little girl, Frances.
    Henry Bibb became an eloquent lecturer, author and community organizer.  http://bit.ly/HenryBibb_LoveAds

    In September 1851, as a result of the new Fugitive Slave Law, Mr. Bibb called a conference to be held in Toronto to discuss whether or not Canada was the best place for African Americans to seek freedom. 

    More than 50 delegates came to the North American Convention, also called “The Convention of Coloured Freemen.” 

    Henry and Mary also started a newspaper, The Voice of the Fugitive, in January, 1851. The Voice of the Fugitive was the first anti-slavery paper published in Canada by people of African descent. It was a very important means of communicating with Underground Railroad supporters, and with the general public. 

    Mr. Bibb's autobiography, Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb, An American Slave publicized the horrors of slavery. It was published in 1849 and became very popular reading, helping to further the cause of anti-slavery in North America and even in Europe.
