Dreams From My Father

Dreams From My Father

by Barack Obama-

In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father--a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man--has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey--first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother's family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where... Read more
Coming Of Age In Mississippi

Coming Of Age In Mississippi

by Anne Moody

Anne Moody brings the rural South to light with her famous autobiography, Coming of Age in Mississippi.  This account of life for a poor black family provides a brutal and sobering look at the Civil Rights movement.
This book strips away the illusion that the inequality being overcome is just between "whites" and "blacks," but is also between sexes, ages, and ideals. A bitter and difficult story, but very important to read and question.

Bury the Chains

Bury the Chains

by Adam Hochschild

From the author of the prize-winning King Leopold's Ghost comes a taut, thrilling account of the first grass-roots human rights campaign, which freed hundreds of thousands of slaves around the world. In 1787, twelve men gathered in a London printing shop to pursue a seemingly impossible goal: ending slavery in the largest empire on earth. Along the way, they would pioneer most of the tools citizen activists still rely on today, from wall posters and mass mailings to boycotts and lapel pins. This... Read more
Incidents In the Life Of a Slave Girl

Incidents In the Life Of a Slave Girl

by Harriet Jacobs

A haunting, evocative recounting of her life as a slave in North Carolina and of her final escape and emancipation, Harriet Jacobs's classic narrative, written between 1853 and 1858 and published pseduonymously in 1861, tells firsthand of the horrors inflicted on slaves. In writing this extraordinary memoir, which culminates in the seven years she spent hiding in a crawl space in her grandmother's attic, Jacobs skillfully used the literary genres of her time, presenting a thoroughly feminist narrative...
