Our Nig is the tale of a mixed-race girl, Frado, abandoned by her white mother after the death of the childs black father. Frado becomes the servant of the Bellmonts, a lower-middle- class white family in the free North, while slavery is still legalMoreOur Nig is the tale of a mixed-race girl, Frado, abandoned by her white mother after the death of the childs black father.

Frado becomes the servant of the Bellmonts, a lower-middle- class white family in the free North, while slavery is still legal in the South, and suffers numerous abuses in their household. Frados story is a tragic one- having left the Bellmonts, she eventually marries a black fugitive slave, who later abandons her. Wilson combined and subverted two literary styles, the sentimental novel and the slave narrative, in writing Our Nig, which was drawn from her real-life experience.

Her sardonic treatment of abolitionists in the novel has long perplexed scholars and readers- Foreman and Pitts explain this puzzle in their Introduction and recount Wilsons life and career after the 1859 publication of Our Nig.
