The Bronx Slave Market

You may have noticed, with a founder like Erin Wisti, an about-to-break-into-creative-nonfiction-stardom, that we’re big on the genre. Today we’re reading Marvel Cooke’s The Bronx Slave Market. Basically, Cooke pretends to be poorer than she is and goes undercover working as a maid.
There are so many amazing moments in this piece, it’s hard to pick out only one, but we love when Cooke talks to these other day maids.
