Reading Review #19: Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, pt. 4
This reading review covers roughly sections 29–41 of the story (pages 116–156)
1. How do Harriet, William, Ellen, and Benny each get their freedom? How are their positions precarious and always at risk?
2. How are Harriet’s experiences in New York and Boston similar to and different from the experiences of some folk today who move here looking for safety or freedom?
