Abduhl Rahhaman’s Story

One of our long term projects involves making sense of the many documents boxed together (years ago) and labeled “Miscellaneous Letters.” This morning I found another gem in the collection.  It does not have an accession number, nor do we have any idea as to its provenance. Regardless, it is quite an interesting read.

  1. Are you familiar with Rahhaman’s published narrative? It’s most easilty accesible in this collection:

    Abduhl Rahhahman, “Abduhl Rah[h]Ahman’s History [1828],” Slave Testimony: Two Centuries of Letters, Speeches, Interviews, and Autobiographies, ed. John W. Blassingame (Baton Rouge, LA: Louisiana State University Press, 1977).
