Major early work of African-American literature
This seminal autobiographical novel is believed to have been the first published novel by an African-American woman. In her depictions of a young girl named Frado, and her destitute wanderings through New England, Wilson gives us our clearest, most accurate account of race relations and perceptions of race in the Antebellum North.
