READING: This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition combines the two most important African American slave narratives into one volume. Frederick Douglass's Narrative, first published in 1845, is an enlightening and incendiary text. Born into slavery, Douglass became the preeminent spokesman for his people during his life; his narrative is an unparalleled account of the dehumanizing effects of slavery and Douglass's own triumph over it. Like Douglass, Harriet Jacobs was born into slavery, and in 1861 she published Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, now recognized as the most comprehensive antebellum slave narrative written by a woman. Jacobs's account broke the silence on the exploitation of African American female slaves, and it remains crucial reading. These narratives illuminate and inform each other. This edition includes an incisive Introduction by Kwame Anthony Appiah and extensive annotations. From the Paperback edition.

READING: Frederick Douglass was born in slavery as Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey near Easton in Talbot County, Maryland. He was not sure of the exact year of his birth, but he knew that it was 1817 or 1818. As a young boy he was sent to Baltimore, to be a house servant, where he learned to read and write, with the assistance of his master's wife. In 1838 he escaped from slavery and went to New York City, where he married Anna Murray, a free colored woman whom he had met in Baltimore. Soon thereafter he changed his name to Frederick Douglass. In 1841 he addressed a convention of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society in Nantucket and so greatly impressed the group that they immediately employed him as an agent. He was such an impressive orator that numerous persons doubted if he had ever been a slave, so he wrote Narrative Of The Life Of Frederick Douglass. During the Civil War he assisted in the recruiting of colored men for the 54th and 55th Massachusetts Regiments and consistently argued for the emancipation of slaves. After the war he was active in securing and protecting the rights of the freemen. In his later years, at different times, he was secretary of the Santo Domingo Commission, marshall and recorder of deeds of the District of Columbia, and United States Minister to Haiti. His other autobiographical works are My Bondage And My Freedom and Life And Times Of Frederick Douglass, published in 1855 and 1881 respectively. He died in 1895.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Haar naam was Henrietta Lacks, maar de medische wereld kent haar als HeLa. In de jaren '50 werden haar kankercellen zonder dat zij dat wist bij haar weggenomen. Met behulp van deze cellen, die letterlijk onsterfelijk zijn, werden de meest uiteenlopende geneeskundige ontdekkingen gedaan en rond de verkoop ervan ontstond een miljoenenindustrie. Het leven van Henrietta bleef echter vrijwel onbekend en ook haar familie wist tot ruim dertig jaar geleden niet van het bestaan van de cellen af. Rebecca Skloot vertelt het verhaal van de 'HeLa-cellen', maar laat ons vooral ook kennis maken met Henrietta, haar verleden en haar familie, die nog steeds worstelt met de nalatenschap van de cellen. Ze laat zien dat het verhaal van de familie Lacks onlosmakelijk verbonden is met de duistere geschiedenis van het experimenteren met Afrikaans-Amerikanen, het ontstaan van de ethiek binnen de biologie en de juridische strijd over de vraag of we de baas zijn over de materie waarvan we zijn gemaakt.
