Published in 1849 and out of print for 160 years, The Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb, an American Slave is among the most remarkable slave narratives. With the marvels of technology, you can listen to the entire audio book for free.
This Dickensian account of life as a quadroon house slave could be made into a movie.
Bibb was conceived in slave rape of the kind celebrated by the Rolling Stones in Brown Sugar. His father was Kentucky State Senator James Bibb. Part Thomas Payne, part Mark Twain, The Life and Adventures of an American Slave offers a glimpse into 1830s America. Its account of sexual relations, hypocrisy and the almighty dollar will resonate with modern readers. Even more astonishing is the correspondence between himself and his former owner.
