Sketches of Slave Life and From Slave Cabin to the Pulpit by Peter Randolph. Edited by Katherine Clay Bassard.

This book is the first anthology of the autobiographical writings of Peter Randolph, a prominent nineteenth-century former slave who became a black abolitionist, pastor, and community leader.  

Randolph’s story is unique because he was freed and relocated from Virginia to Boston, along with his entire plantation cohort.  A lawsuit launched by Randolph against his former master’s estate left legal documents that corroborate his autobiographies.
