A story of love, loss and bravery.
Mary Prince's account of the hardships of slavery gives a true insight as to the torture that millions were subjected to simply because of the colour of their skin.
This new edition includes a full timeline of Prince's life, alongside The Narrative of Louis Asa-Asa, A Captured African, and his own experience of slavery.
The History of Mary Prince was first published in 1831with the support of Thomas Pringle and the Anti-Slavery Society. It was circulated to abolitionists all over the British Isles and found support in Women's Rights groups.
It has been reissued as a part of KU Press's The Black Abolitionists collection.
