Mary Prince, Her Story, Her Words and Me
When Mary's narrative was published back in 1831 it was viewed as shocking and ground breaking. It was the first narrative published telling the story of a female African slave. In 1833 the Abolition of Slavery Act was past in Britain and by 1838 it was implemented. Mary's story played a part.
400 years of slavery a life style choice?
Mary's story and her words prove that it was anything but.
