Description

Life of William Grimes, the Runaway Slave is the first fugitive slave narrative in American history. A candid, unfiltered, and fully authenticated account of both slavery and so-called freedom in the antebellum U.S. before the advent of the American antislavery movement. This edition of Grimes’s autobiography represents a historic partnership between noted scholar of the African American slave narrative, William L. Andrews, and Regina Mason, Grimes’s great-great-great-granddaughter. No other slave narrative has been recovered, researched, and annotated by a slave’s descendant until now
