Running a thousand miles for freedom : the escape of William and Ellen Craft from slavery by William Craft( )

15 editions published between 1860 and 2018 in English and held by 2,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1848 William and Ellen Craft made one of the most daring and remarkable escapes in the history of slavery in America. With fair-skinned Ellen in the guise of a white male planter and William posing as her servant, the Crafts traveled by rail and ship - in plain sight and relative luxury - from bondage in Macon, Georgia, to freedom first in Philadelphia, then Boston, and ultimately England." "This edition of their thrilling story faithfully follows the original 1860 text. The new introduction and annotated supplementary readings, drawn from a variety of contemporary sources, help to place the Crafts' story within the complex cultural currents of transatlantic abolitionism."--BOOK JACKET

Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom gives a unique historical opportunity to witness a first hand account of notions of race, gender and class as they stood in a nineteenth century society which treated them as fixed and defining

The Civitas anthology of African American slave narratives( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Hailed in 1849 as "a new department in the literature of civilization," the slave narrative forms the foundation of the African American literary tradition. From the late eighteenth-century narratives by Africans who endured the harrowing Middle Passage, through the classic American fugitive slave narratives of the mid-nineteenth century, slave narratives have provided some of the most graphic and damning documentary evidence of the horrors of slavery. The slave narrative blends personal memory and rhetorical attacks on slavery to create powerful literature and propaganda. This work presents the seven classic antislavery narratives of the antebellum period in their entirety: The History of Mary Prince, a West Indian Slave, the first slave narrative published by a woman in the Americas; The Confessions of Nat Turner, written when Turner was asked to record his motivation for leading the bloodiest slave revolt in U.S. history; The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, the first narrative to fashion the male fugitive slave into an African American cultural hero; The Narrative of William W. Brown, an account that explored with unprecedented realism the slave's survival ethic and the art of the slave trickster; The Narrative of the Life of Henry Bibb, the story of the struggles of the most memorable family man among the classic slave narrators; Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom, a chronicle of one of the most daring and celebrated slave escapes ever recorded; and Incidents in the Life of Slave Girl, a dramatic text that exposed the sexual abuse of female slaves and pioneered the image of the fugitive slave woman as an articulate resister and survivor. Born out of lives of unparalleled suffering, the slave narrative captures all the bravery, drama, and hope that characterized the African American struggle against slavery"--Front flap
