Event: Brown Bag #7

In celebration of Black History Month

Wednesday, February 27
Brown Bag #7
 Dr. Betsy Beaulieu, Dean/Associate Professor, Core Division,
will present her talk:
Motherhood-Identity-Freedom: Harriet Jacobs’ Story”

Where and when: Morgan Room, Aiken Hall, 12:30

About this discussion:

“Slavery is terrible for men, but it is far more terrible for women.”

In 1861, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was published under the pseudonym Linda Brent.  The narrative, which blends conventions of the slave narrative, the 19th-century sentimental novel, and the American adventure genre, is now considered the pre-eminent account of an enslaved woman’s life.  This talk will introduce Harriet Jacobs, a smart, courageous woman whose incredible yet little-known story vividly depicts the unique evils of slavery women experienced.
