Book Description Dover Publications Inc., United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Born in Bermuda to a house slave in 1788, Mary Prince suffered the first of many soul-shattering experiences in her life when she was separated from her parents and siblings at the age of twelve. Subjected to bodily and sexual abuse by subsequent masters, she was bought and sold several times before she was ultimately freed. The first black woman to break the bonds of slavery in the British colonies and publish a record of her experiences, Prince vividly recalls her life in the West Indies, her rebellion against physical and psychological degradation, and her eventual escape in 1828 in England. Her straightforward, often poetic account of immense anguish, separation from her husband, and struggle for freedom inflamed public opinion during a period when stormy debates on abolition were common in both the United States and England. This edition also includes a substantial supplement by Thomas Pringle, the original editor, as well as another brief slave account: The Narrative of Asa-Asa, a Captured African. Essential reading for students of African-American studies, Mary Prince s classic account of determination and endurance aids in filling the many gaps in black women s history.
