I, Dred Scott: A Fictional Slave Narrative Based on the Life and Legal Precedent of Dred Scott0 0 5 Author: Shelia P. Moses
Born into slavery in Virginia in the late 1700s, Dred Scott had little to look forward to in life. But on April 6, 1846, Dred Scott and his wife, Harriett, took the dangerous and courageous step to sue for their freedom, entering into legal battles that would last for eleven years. During this time, Dred Scott would need all the help and support he could get—from folks in the community all the way back to the people with whom he had been raised.
With a foreword by Dred Scott’s great-grandson, Shelia P. Moses’s stunning story chronicles Dred Scott’s experiences as an enslaved person, as a plaintiff in one of the most important legal cases in American history, and as a free man. Dred Scott’s story is one of tremendous courage and fierce determination.
