Explain whether you think an autobiographical or fictional account by a slave (such as Phillis Wheatley and Olaudah Equiano) is more persuasive than a biographical or fictional account by a white author (such as John Gabriel Stedman or Aphra Behn).
The believe degree of persuasion does not depend on the fact if the author was a slave or a white author. it depends on the writing skills and especially in the area of persuasion rather then on race or social status. While it might seem that from the first person who had personal experience it might sound more persuasive , it is not always the case. The talent and skills of an author play the most important role when it comes to writing either autobiographical of fictional story.
