by Elizabeth Keckley

***Every lesson is moving us towards answering the Culminating Writing Task question.

Elizabeth Keckley discusses two topics: slavery and Mrs. Lincoln. What is Keckley’s position on slavery? What is her

position on Mrs. Lincoln? How does she develop and support her position on each topic throughout her memoir?
