Published in 1891, Autobiography of John G. Fee, Berea, Kentucky describes various incidents that epitomize Fee's experience as an abolitionist in the South, beginning with his religious conversion in early childhood. The text details his beliefs, his role in founding Berea, and the obstacles he surmounted, including forced exile in Ohio at the hands of pro-slavery forces. Throughout the text, Fee emphasizes that slavery and racism are sinful and articulates his vision of equality for all. He describes threats and acts of violence visited on himself, his family, and his institutions because of his race politics. The narrative closes with Fee's 1890 address outlining religious reasons for his political opinions.
