The story of the life, character, and ministry of the black slave preacher ''Uncle Jack,'' written by Rev. William Spotswood White (1800-1873). As a boy, Uncle Jack had been kidnapped in Africa and then sold into slavery in Nottoway County, Virginia, likely in the 1750s. After being taught to read by his master's children, he received his license to preach from the Baptist church. Uncle Jack died in 1843. The appendix contains a 26-page biography of the Virginia legislator and close friend of Uncle Jack, James Jones (1772-1848), and a nine-page sketch describing a slave's night funeral.
