Twenty-two years a slave, and forty years a free man : embracing a correspondence of several years, while president of Wilberforce Colony, London, Canada West by Austin Steward( )

34 editions published between 1857 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this compelling memoir and argument against the evils of slavery, author Austin Steward writes: "Some have attempted to apologize for the enslaving of the Negro, by saying that they are inferior to the Anglo-Saxon race in every respect. This charge I deny; it is utterly false. Does not the Bible inform us that 'God hath created of one blood all the nations of the earth?'" Read all about Steward's account of being born into a life of slavery, his eventual escape to Canada and his subsequent involvement in the anti-slavery and temperance campaigns. Austin Steward is an American hero not only because he survived and wrote about the brutal ordeal of slavery, but also because he was a strong and active opponent of the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law. Steward's autobiography, Twenty-Two Years a Slave is considered one of the best and most important slave narratives available today

The author does not think that any apology is necessary for this issue of his Life and History. He believes that American Slavery is now the great question before the American People: that it is not merely a political question, coming up before the country as the grand element in the making of a President, and then to be laid aside for four years; but that its moral bearings are of such a nature that the Patriot, the Philanthropist, and all good men agree that it is an evil of so much magnitude, that longer to permit it, is to wink at sin, and to incur the righteous judgments of God. The late outrages and aggressions of the slave power to possess itself of new soil, and extend the influence of the hateful and God-provoking "Institution," is a practical commentary upon its benefits and the moral qualities of those who seek to sustain and extend it. The author is therefore the more willing - nay, anxious, to lay alongside of such arguments the history of his own life and experiences as a slave, that those who read may know what are some of the characteristics of that highly favored intitution, which is sought to be preserved and perpetuated. "Facts are stubborn things, "--And this is the reason why all systems, religious, moral, or social, which are founded in injustice, and supported by fraud and robbery, suffer so much by faithful exposition. he author has endeavored to present a true statement of the practical workings of the system of Slavery, as he has seen and felt it himself. He has intended "nothing to extenuate, nor aught set down in malice;" indeed, so far from believing that he has misrepresented Slavery as an institution, he does not feel that he has the power to give anything like a true picture of it in all its deformity and wickedness; especially that Slavery which is an institution among an enlightened and Christian people, who profess to believe that all men are born free and equal, and who have certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
