Product Description

Imported from USA

In 1850, fourteen-year-old Celia became the property of Robert Newsom, a prosperous and respected Missouri farmer. For
the next five years, she was cruelly and repeatedly molested by her abusive master--and bore him two children in the
process. But in 1855, driven to the limits of her endurance, Celia fought back. And at the tender age of eighteen, the
desperate and frightened young black woman found herself on trial for Newsom's murder--the defendant in a landmark
courtroom battle that threatened to undermine the very foundations of the South's most cherished institution. Based on
court records, correspondences and newspaper accounts past and present, Celia, A Slave is a powerful masterwork of
passion and scholarship--a stunning literary achievement that brilliantly illuminates one of the most extraordinary
events in the long, dark history of slavery in America.
