About this product
- DescriptionFirst published in 1859, Our Nig is an autobiographical narrative that stands as one of the most important accounts of the life of a black woman in the antebellum North. In the story of Frado, a spirited black girl who is abused and overworked as the indentured servant to a New England family, Harriet E. Wilson tells a heartbreaking story about the resilience of the human spirit. This edition incorporates new research showing that Wilson was t only a pioneering African-American literary figure but also an entrepreneur in the black women's hair care market fifty years before Madame C.J. Walker's hair care empire made her the country's first woman millionaire.
- Author BiographyHarriet E. Wilson (1825-1900) was born in New Hampshire, where she worked from a young age as a servant to an abusive family.
