Mastering slavery : memory, family, and identity in women's slave narratives by Jennifer Fleischner( Book )

In Mastering Slavery, Fleischner draws upon a range of disciplines, including psychoanalysis, African-American studies, literary theory, social history, and gender studies, to analyze how the slave narratives--in their engagement with one another and with white women's antislavery fiction--yield a far more amplified and complicated notion of familial dynamics and identity than they have generally been thought to reveal. Her study exposes the impact of the entangled relations among master, mistress, slave adults and slave children on the sense of identity of individual slave narrators. She e

Incidents in the life of a slave girl : written by herself by Harriet A Jacobs( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This enlarged edition of the most significant and celebrated slave narrative now completes the Jacobs family saga, surely one of the most memorable in American history. John S. Jacobs's short slave narrative, "A True Tale of Slavery," published in London in 1861, adds a brother's perspective to Harriet Jacobs's own autobiography. It is an exciting addition to this now classic work, as John S. Jacobs presents additional historical information about the family life so well described by his sister. It portrays the people, places, and events Harriet Jacobs wrote about from the different perspective of a male narrator. Once more, Jean Yellin, who discovered this long-lost document, supplies annotation and authentication. She has also brought her Introduction up to date."--Jacket

Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Keckley the remarkable story of the friendship between a first lady and a former slave by Jennifer Fleischner( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"I consider you my best living friend," Mary Lincoln wrote to Elizabeth Keckly in 1867, and indeed theirs was a close, if tumultuous, relationship. Born into slavery, mulatto Elizabeth Keckly was Mary Lincoln's dressmaker, confidante, and mainstay during the difficult years that the Lincolns occupied the White House and the early years of Mary's widowhood. But she was a fascinating woman in her own right, independent and already well-established as the dressmaker to the Washington elite when she was first hired by Mary Lincoln upon her arrival in the nation's capital. Lizzy had bought her freedom in 1855 and come to Washington determined to make a life for herself as a free black ... Mary Lincoln had hired Lizzy in part because she was considered a "high society" seamstress and Mary, an outsider in Washington's social circles, was desperate for social cachet. With her husband struggling to keep the nation together, Mary turned increasingly to her seamstress for companionship, support, and advice-and over the course of those trying years, Lizzy Keckly became her confidante and closest friend. [In this book, the author] traces the pivotal events that enabled these two women-one born to be a mistress, the other to be a slave-to forge such an unlikely bond at a time when relations between blacks and whites were tearing the nation apart. Beginning with their respective childhoods in the slaveholding states of Virginia and Kentucky, their story takes us through the years of tragic Civil War, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the early Reconstruction period.-Dust jacket
