Olaudah Equiano's "Narrative" recounts his kidnapping in Africa at the age of 11, his service as the slave of an officer in the British Navy, and his years of labour on slave ships until he was able to purchase his freedom in 1766. As a free man on a Central American plantation, he supervised slaves; increasingly disgusted by his co-workers, he returned to England in 1777. In England he worked for the resettlement of blacks in Sierra Leone, married an Englishwoman, and became a leading and respected figure in the anti-slaver movement. An autobiography, a tale of spiritual quest and fulfilment, a treatise on religion, politics and economics, "The Interesting Narrative" is a work of enduring literary and historical value.

AN invidious falsehood having appeared in the Oracle of the 25th,2 and the Star of the 27th of April 1792,3 with a view to hurt my character,4 and to discredit and prevent the sale of my Narrative, asserting, that I was born in the Danish island of Santa Cruz, in the West Indies,5 it is necessary that, in this edition, I should take notice thereof, and it is only needful of me to appeal to those numerous and respectable persons of character who knew me when I first arrived in England, and could speak no language but that of Africa.6 Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Format: Taschenbuch
It was because of race that the adventures of Equiano had begun. White slave traders had stolen Equiano from his family and homeland. He was then sold into slavery. In his narrative, The Interesting Narrative and Other Writings, he writes about the races he had encountered and leaves the reader to interpret how he perceived them.
What is more important, he is able to show how, throughout his life, he learns to understand and analyze different races and cultures. From his days as a slave, to his religious interests, to his promoting an end to slavery, Equiano learned from his racial and cultural encounters. He learned about different races and how to interpret the differences.

Von Ein Kunde am 9. September 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I had to read this book for an African American History class and found that although the first few chapters were a bit tedious, the writing gets more interesting later in the book. The last 3 or 4 chapters caught my attention as his Christianity really flourished and he began to see the wrongs that were being done in a different light. Knowing that the story is true and written specifically for knowledge of the events that took place in the 17th century, the writings Equiano penned were painful, creative and raw. It is hard to believe someone had to "purchase" their own freedom; and even after he had his release papers, he was still not free from a European's wrath, as the African could not legally defend himself against a white man.
His strength in his beliefs and bravery to face these European "christians" and chastise them for their hypocricy amazed me.
A book worth reading if you like history and truth.
