To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Diversion Books is publishing seminal works of the era: stories told by the men and women who led, who fought, and who lived in an America that had come apart at the seams. Among the first of slave narratives to be published, Harriet A. Jacobs led an extraordinary life, punctuated by the limitless hardship of slavery, made indelible by the sheer power of her words. In this narrative she writes candidly of the treatment she witness and endured as a slave, as well as her dramatic escape to freedom.

Frederick Douglass tells his own story in this heartfelt narrative. Remarkable not only for the truth of the matter but for the life of many slaves that could not tell their story. Then the Lord said to Abram, "You can be sure that your descendants will be strangers in a foreign land, where they will be oppressed as slaves for 400 years. But I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and in the end they will come away with great wealth. Genesis 15:13 and 14

Harriet Jacobs once said, "Slavery is terrible for men, but it is far more terrible for women". Yes indeed. Men faced many hardships during slavery. They were beaten severely, starved, worked to the point where they couldn't anymore and many more sufferings. On the other hand, women also faced these similar hardships and had to suffer even more. They would have to watch their children being taken away from them and sometimes never see them again. Women had to also deal with their Master trying to sexually harass them and so on. This is the story of Harriet Ann Jacobs, a story of slavery of the 19th century, a story of terrible human suffering, and the story that, later on, played a significant role in the abolitionist movement. Slavery still continues everywhere in the world, its operational styles have changed but its brutality has remained the same, it harms human lives in the same way it used to harm in the past. Today, there are many women (and men too) like Harriet Jacobs are suffering in slave trades in many parts of the world under our very eyes, 19th century's Harriet represents many other slave women who need to free like Harriet finally was. Hence, Harriet's story has been brought here as the 2nd volume of ABSURD's "Slave Narrative" series as a wake-up call to save the victims of slavery and to save the mankind.
