Collected for the first time ever, black women born into slavery tell it like it really was as they share their personal experiences of life in bondage. Told in their own words, "Soul Survivors" is their moving accounts of the sexual and physical suffering they endured during their enslavement. In graphic detail, their recollections of trying to sustain dignity in the face of the most inhumane circumstances; the unbearable relationships between master and slave; the difficulty in managing a family, marriage, and childhood under slavery, will leave you reeling in shock.Read about the illicit sexual relationships between white men and black women, as told by Louise Pacquette, 'the octoroon concubine'. Go 'Behind The Scenes' of the White House of President Lincoln as a slave maid. And hear Linda Brent's 'Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl', just as she told it.
