an African American slave who was born in Delaware. He is best known for his 1825 autobiography entitled A Narrative of Some Remarkable Incidents in the Life of Solomon Bayley, Formerly a Slave in the State of Delaware, North America. Bayley's birth and death dates were never recorded like many African Americans who lived in America during the 19th century, although some scholars such as Henry Louis Gates, Jr. were able to make rough estimates of his birth and death year. A Narrative of Some Remarkable Incidents in the Life of Solomon Bayley, is forty-eight pages in length and is disjointed at times, in part because it is based on correspondence between Bayley and another slave.
