Harriet Jacobs is best known for an 1861 autobiography chronicling the realities of her enslavement, including the sexual abuse she survived. However, twentieth-century scholars dismissed the story as a fictional account written by a white abolitionist, and today the public knows little about Jacobs. Join us for a presentation that reveals the history of this remarkable person.
