The slave narrative is a literary genre involving the autobiographical accounts of enslaved Africans. A slave narrative gives an account of the life, or a portion of the life, of a fugitive or former slave. It could be written or orally related by the slave personally. More than 6,000 such narratives are estimated to exist; the overwhelming majority of American slave narratives were authored by African Americans.
