Harper, Frances E. W: Minnie's Sacrifice. V1. 16 Feb 2011

Frances Ellen Watkins Harper (September 24, 1825 – February 22, 1911) was an African American abolitionist and poet. Born free in Baltimore, Maryland, she had a long and prolific career, publishing her first book of poetry at twenty and her first novel, the widely praised Iola Leroy, at age 67.

This moving nineteenth century novel tells the story of Minnie and Louis, two priviledged mixed race young people, born under slavery and raised as white. They marry after learning of their true heritage, and subsequently dedicate their lives and fortune to the betterment of their beleaguered race in the hostile, post-war South. This idyllic, heroic couple mirror the struggle for emancipation fought through war, faith, education and voting rights. Through sadness and challenge the two consecrate themselves to self-sacrifice and to "the fiery crown of martyrdom" in order to encourage and ennoble their people.
