African american literature

Read “The Literature of Slavery and Freedom” (151-162), Equiano’s “The Interesting Narrative” (187-213); Wheatley’s “On Being Brought from Africa to America” (219); Horton’s “The Lover’s Farewell” (240); Hammon “An Address to Miss Phillis Wheatly” (165-168); Douglas Narrative of the Live of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, Written by Himself (385-417); Jacobs Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (279-315) African American women writers of the antebellum period genderized African American life in pre-Civil War America. Discuss how you believe Sojourner Truth genderized her experiences in her Address to the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention (1851) on page 245-249. Consider briefly discussing the tone, genre, or narrative voice. Also, be sure to choose at least one specific passage from the text to demonstrate your points
