This course concentrates on the definitively American genre of the slave narrative. We will trace its roots back to reports from the earliest moments of British colonialism in the New World and forward to contemporary accounts of 21st-century enslavement. Our focus, however, will be on the classic 19th-century, ante-bellum slave narratives by authors such as Frederick Douglass, Venture Smith, Harriet Jacobs, and Solomon Northrup and the post-bellum slave narratives by authors such as Elizabeth Keckley, Booker T. Washington and Nat Love. Discussion/Lecture format --- Most appropriate for English majors who have taken English 86, education majors and high school teachers of social studies and/or literature. This course fulfill the University's Diversity 1 requirement AND the English Department's Category C requirement.
