Description


Ukawsaw Gronniosaw (1705 - September 1775), also known as James Albert, was a freed slave and autobiographer. His autobiography is considered the first published by an African in Britain. This book gives a vivid account of Gronniosaw's life, from his capture in Africa through slavery to a life of poverty in Colchester and Kidderminster. He was attracted to this last town because it was at one time the home of Richard Baxter, a 17th-century Calvinist minister whom Gronniosaw much admired.
This book has been deemed as a classic and has stood the test of time. The book has been considered by academicians and scholars of great significance and value to literature. This forms a part of the knowledge base for future generations.
