After enduring more than 30 years of slavery, Henry "Box" Brown achieved freedom by having himself nailed inside a packing crate and shipped from Richmond to Philadelphia. Initially published in 1851, Brown's extraordinary memoir recounts the harsh circumstances of his bondage as well as the details of his 350-mile journey by railroad, steamboat, and horse cart inside a container three feet long and two feet wide. Acclaimed by Dr. Cornel West as "one of the great creative acts in the After enduring more than 30 years of slavery, Henry "Box" Brown achieved freedom by having himself nailed inside a packing crate and shipped from Richmond to Philadelphia. Initially published in 1851, Brown's extraordinary memoir recounts the harsh circumstances of his bondage as well as the details of his 350-mile journey by railroad, steamboat, and horse cart inside a container three feet long and two feet wide. Acclaimed by Dr. Cornel West as "one of the great creative acts in the struggle for black freedom," the story of Brown's daring escape continues to resonate as a reflection of the ongoing struggles of oppressed people around the world. Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr, declared this narrative "just as relevant now as it was 150 years ago," and modern readers will find it an unforgettable source of inspiration.

Narrative of the Life of Henry Box Brown - new book

ISBN: 9780198033875

In 1849, Henry Brown escaped from slavery by shipping himself in a three-foot-by-two-foot wooden crate from Virginia to an anti-slavery office in Philadelphia. Twenty-seven hours and 350 miles later, Brown stepped out of his box to begin a new life. This is his memoir, originally published in 1851 in England, as fresh and compelling today as it was 150 years ago. This extraordinary narrative paints an indelible portrait of life in slavery. With a keen sense of irony, Brown examines the "peculiar institution"—from the hypocrisy of slave-owning Christian preachers, to the system of bribery that forced slaves to purchase the rights to their own belongings, to the practice of separating slave families with no warning. The story also describes one of the most audacious, creative escapes ever completed. A classic slave narrative, it makes for unforgettable reading.
