Summary
While some scholars imply that only the struggle for freedom was legitimate, Jenny Sharpe complicates the linear narrative--from slavery to freedom and literacy--that emerged from the privileging of autobiographical accounts like that of Frederick Douglass. She challenges a paradigm that equates agency with resistance and self-determination, and introduces new ways to examine negotiations for power within the constraints of slavery
