The Memoirs of Boston King, a Black Preacher (1798) present an autobiographical narrative of an ex-slave born around 1760 in South Carolina. King joined the British army to fight for his freedom during the American Revolution, re-settled in Nova Scotia after the war, and eventually became a Methodist missionary to Sierra Leone. This electronic edition publishes an annotated text of King's Memoirs together with an audio and video reading performance by Professor Neal Lester, chair of the Arizona State University English Department.
