Harriet E. Wilson (March 15, 1825 – June 28, 1900) was an African-American novelist. She was the first African American of any gender to publish a novel on the North American continent. Her novel Our Nig, or Sketches from the Life of a Free Black was published anonymously in 1859 in Boston, Massachusetts, and was not widely known. The novel was discovered in 1982 by the scholar Henry Louis Gates, J. who documented it as the first African-American novel published in the United States. Wilson (1825–1900) was born in New Hampshire, where she worked from a young age as a servant to an abusive family. It's good to remind ourselves that slavery was not confined to the southern states.
