About This Book

After enduring more than 30 years of slavery, Henry `Box` Brown achieved freedom by having himself nailed inside a packing crate and shipped from Richmond to Philadelphia. Initially published in 1851, Brown's extraordinary memoir recounts the harsh circumstances of his bondage as well as the details of his 350-mile journey by railroad, steamboat, and horse cart inside a container three feet long and two feet wide.
Acclaimed by Dr. Cornel West as `one of the great creative acts in the struggle for black freedom,` the story of Brown's daring escape continues to resonate as a reflection of the ongoing struggles of oppressed people around the world. Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., declared this narrative `just as relevant now as it was 150 years ago,` and modern readers will find it an unforgettable source of inspiration.
