Happy Fourth of July!!! Tonight on Girl, Goodnight, we will be reading "Minnie's Sacrifice" written by Frances Harper in 1869.

Minnie’s Sacrifice was originally published as a serialization of three novels in The Christian Recorder, a journal by the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Minnie’s Sacrifice is the story of a woman living in the North who’s identity and heritage is kept from her until she unexpectedly meets her birth mother, an escaped slave. She marries a man whose racial identity and heritage were also kept from him, and they move to the South to participate in uplifting and empowering other members of their race.
