Dr. Audrey Fisch (Professor, New Jersey City University) has edited a book, The Cambridge Companion to the African American Slave Narrative, complete with complex but understandable essays and articles about the importance of the slave narratives. Not until graduate school was I aware of the class slave narratives in American history, culture and literature, the slave narratives are an essential part but disgraceful part of American history. The slaves who were able to read and write were only a few but they were staunch abolitionists when they recognized the wrongs of slavery in America. The writers, researchers, and professors have studied the slave narrative from the eighteenth century until it's abolishment in 1865 with the Emancipation Proclamation. Slaves were fully aware of their enslavement and their situation as impossible until abolition was established illegalizing slavery. The abolition movement was one of the major factors in the Civil War. Freedom came with the heavy price of finding a new life. For the slave narratives, we understand their point of view and determination to see the atrocity end. The essays here are well-researched and documented in explaining and analyzing the slave narratives.
