Earliest Known Prison Memoir Written by Black Inmate Discovered

The Life and Adventures of a Haunted Convict is now known as the earliest prison memoir written by an African-American. Robert Reed was incarcerated in New York from the 1830s through the 1850s. He writes about brutal punishments performed on inmates, including whippings and simulated drowning. The manuscript is being prepared for publication. (Photo: Doug Berry/Getty Images)
