March 13. This date celebrates the birth of Harriet Jacobs in 1813. She was an African-American abolitionist and author.
She became active in the antislavery movement and, at the urging of several female abolitionists, wrote Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, which was published in Boston in 1860. Incidents is a powerful depiction of certain aspects of slavery, such as the sexual abuse of female slaves, avoided by most nineteenth-century critics of the institution.

No, I didn't go to town today as planned. Saw him there last week waiting for the bus.
Mom's having headaches daily. Sis talked to her, trying to convince her to go for xray or something. She now admits to having these pains since she fell last week. Canceled my plans and stayed home. Made her lots of delicious small meals.
