Our Nig, or, Sketches from the Life of a Free Black, In A Two-Story White House

Our Nig,  or,  Sketches from the Life of a Free Black, In A Two-Story White House by Harriet E. Wilson
By: (1825-1900)

Harriet E. Wilson's novel, Our Nig, presents a poignant and powerful exploration of the struggles faced by a free black woman in 19th-century America. Through the story of Frado, a young girl abandoned by her white mother and left to endure abuse and exploitation at the hands of her employers, Wilson sheds light on the racial prejudices and injustices that permeated society at the time.

The novel's vivid descriptions and compelling narrative draw the reader into Frado's world, allowing them to experience firsthand the hardships and discrimination she faces. Wilson's writing is both evocative and thought-provoking, challenging the reader to confront their own preconceptions and biases.

Overall, Our Nig is a haunting and important work that shines a light on a lesser-known aspect of American history. It is a must-read for anyone interested in exploring the complexities of race, identity, and power dynamics in the 19th century and beyond.
