The Black Convent Slave: The Climax of Nunnery Exposures: Awful Disclosures

Ford Hendrickson

First published in 1891, The Black Convent Slave is a sensationalist exposé of alleged abuses within the Catholic Church involving a young Black woman who had been forcibly taken into a convent and enslaved. While the book is now largely discredited for its lack of veracity, it remains a valuable artifact of the anti-Catholic and anti-Black prejudices that were prevalent in American society during the late 19th century.
