I am here, Harriet Ann Jacobs.

I saw God’s care in my struggles, and this helped me greatly when I laid down my burden of mortal life. What I encountered here was beyond my wildest hopes. I saw all the evil the slaveholders did come right back to them, and I knew that God is just and fair.


Harriet Ann Jacobs (1813-1897) was an American slave who, after many trials, became free. She published in 1861 an account of her experiences, called “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself”.
