IBTH 5425 - Slave Narratives

This course is designed with a premise that the original texts of African- American culture are the works known as “slave narratives.” Hundreds of narratives were published between 1790 and 1940, in American and in other English-speaking countries. Within the extended documents (such as The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano or the Narrative on the Life of Frederick Douglass or Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, or Booker T. Washington’s Up From Slavery) or the brief, fragmentary accounts found in John Blassingame’s Slave Testimony, or George Rawick’s edition of slave narratives collected in the 1930’s, the building blocks of African-American culture are found in these testaments. (Area requirement). (3)
