Douglass' books are not novels. Also, IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT isn't about slavery.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yes, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is not a novel - it's autobiography.

You want me to remove it, Precious?


message 3: by Ðɑηηɑ (new)

Ðɑηηɑ Judging by the avrg ratings, ppl love this kind of books :)!


message 4: by Sharanja (new)

Sharanja The Color Purple doesn't really concern slavery does it?


message 5: by Julie (new)

Julie Removed the Handmaid's Tale. It's one of my favorite books too but it certainly doesn't belong on a book about AMERICAN slavery.


message 6: by sappho_reader (new)

sappho_reader The Book of Night Women is devastating, but it is set in Jamaica not U.S. In fact, the United States is not even referenced once therefore it does not belong on this list.
