The SUN in The American Renaissance Tarot celebrates Harriet Jacobs' first sunrise on free soil, which she writes about in her autobiography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. After hiding in a cramped space for seven years in order to evade her lecherous master, Jacobs makes her escape by ship in company with her friend Fanny. Their destination is the free city of Philadelphia, birthplace of the American ideal of equality.
