Margaret Walker’s historical novel entitled Jubilee, brilliantly describes the life story of Vyry who was the daughter of Hetta, a house slave and her master, John. As Walker tells the story of Vyry’s life, she takes the reader through the youthful, jubilant days of Vyry’s childhood, through her deep dark days of slavery, her positive and negative experiences with love, and her experiences with her children. Finally, Walker paints a beautiful picture of freedom for Vyry.

Harriet Jacobs’ Narrative "I want to add my testimony to that of abler pens to convince the people of the Free States what slavery really is. Only by experience can any one realize how deep, and dark, and foul is that pit of abominations." After nearly seven years hiding in a storeroom crawlspace above her grandmother’s home, Harriet Ann Jacobs took a step that other slaves dared to dream.

This young slave woman’s fight and faith were written in her autobiography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Written by Herself, self-published in 1861 under the pseudonym Linda Brent.
