Reading for fun, what should I read next? If i like uncle tom's cabin

I have been reading Uncle tom's cabin and really enjoy it. I'm getting close to the end and need to choose another book. Please tell me what you think I should read next.

 

I'm just reading for fun.

I'm sorry that I can not remember the authors name. But the man who wrote the Brer Rabbit tales, also has excellent slave folk tales. I treasured a book my uncle gave me that had the Brer on one side and you flipped it for the folk tales.

Booker T. Washington's autobiography, Up from Slavery, is a wonderful story.
