Envisioning emancipation : Black Americans and the end of slavery by Deborah Willis( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this pioneering book, renowned photographic historian Deborah Willis and historian of slavery Barbara Krauthamer have amassed nearly 150 photographs--some never before published--from the antebellum days of the 1850s through the New Deal era of the 1930s. The authors vividly display the seismic impact of emancipation on African Americans born before and after the Proclamation, providing a perspective on freedom and slavery and a way to understand the photos as documents of engagement, action, struggle, and aspiration ... From photos of the enslaved on plantations and African American soldiers and camp workers in the Union Army to Juneteenth celebrations, slave reunions, and portraits of black families and workers in the American South, the images in this book challenge perceptions of slavery. They show not only what the subjects emphasized about themselves but also the ways Americans of all colors and genders opposed slavery and marked its end."--Jacket
Black slaves, Indian masters : slavery, emancipation, and citizenship in the Native American south by Barbara Krauthamer( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From the late eighteenth century through the end of the Civil War, Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians bought, sold, and owned Africans and African Americans as slaves, a fact that persisted after the tribes' removal from the Deep South to Indian Territory. The tribes formulated racial and gender ideologies that justified this practice and marginalized free black people in the Indian nations well after the Civil War and slavery had ended. Through the end of the nineteenth century, ongoing conflicts among Choctaw, Chickasaw, and U.S. lawmakers left untold numbers of former slaves and their descendants in the two Indian nations without citizenship in either the Indian nations or the United States. In this groundbreaking study, Barbara Krauthamer rewrites the history of southern slavery, emancipation, race, and citizenship to reveal the centrality of Native American slaveholders and the black people they enslaved." -- Publisher's description
Blacks on the borders : African-Americans' transition from slavery to freedom in Texas and the Indian territory, 1836-1907 by Barbara Krauthamer( )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Growing up with the country": African American migrants in Indian Territory, 1870--1920 by Kendra Taira Field( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the story of a group of African American migrants whose lives were defined by the pursuit of freedom. Following in the footsteps of a number of African American, including so-called "mulatto," men who left post-Reconstruction Mississippi and Arkansas in a hurry, the story begins with the material and cultural history of sexual relations across the color line, African American land ownership, and the emergence of a rigid racial dichotomy in the South. Over the course of their lifetimes, these men experienced a constant shifting of racial categories over both time and space. Once in Indian Territory, they gained access to Indian land through purchase and marriage, access soon cut short by the emergence of Oklahoma statehood and oil speculation. Freedom was thus not an uncomplicated claim for African American migrants in Indian Territory
African Americans and Native Americans by Barbara Krauthamer( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author presents a broad range of scholarship on the history of relations between African Americans and Native Americans over five centuries of contact and offers an interdisciplinary perspective by bringing together works by historians, anthropologists, literary scholars, and a creative artist. The breadth and diversity of this history make it almost impossible to make any broad generalizations about the relations between African Americans and Indians, the author notes, emphasizing the variegated nature of the interactions. The author overviews the history of the ethnic relations, highlighting Africans in colonial America from the earliest Spanish exploration of the continents through the Spanish and English colonies, Native Americans in the Southern US and slavery, African Americans and Seminoles in Florida, and African Americans and Native Americans in the United States from the aftermath of the civil war to Oklahoma's statehood in 1907. Krauthamer reviews current issues in African American-Native American relations such as the question of how Indian identity is defined in official contexts and in people's daily lives and social relations, as well as representations of African Americans and Native Americans in art and literature. Important areas that await future research include the "Africanization" of Indian peoples in the colonial southeast; black women's experiences of slavery and freedom in Indian nations; and interactions between black soldiers and Indian peoples in the nineteenth-century southwest. Following the essay, a bibliography of recommended reading, a chronology of events from 1527 to 1898, and a glossary of historical persons, locations, legislation, and conflicts are presented
'Cleave to the black': Identity, community, and allegiance-making in post-Emancipation Jamaica by Tanya Huelett( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rooted in the premise that persons of African descent constituted a distinct but by no means uncomplicatedly cohesive community in post-Emancipation Jamaica, this study poses and attempts to answer questions about the roots of and ongoing contributors to allegiance-making, and the ways such factors shaped the potential for insurgent action on the part of members of this diverse community of African descent in key moments
Deborah Willis and Barbara Krauthamer: Envisioning emancipation Black Americans and the end of slavery by Deborah Willis( Recording )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
An art photographer and one of the nation's leading historians of African American photography, Deborah Willis is University Professor and Chair of the Department of Photography and Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. Barbara Krauthamer teaches history at the University of Massachusetts, and has authored a number of articles on the subjects of slavery in Indian Territory and the intersections between African American and Native American cultures. Willis and Krauthamer's visual new book, Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of Slavery, examines photographs that articulate the public and private lives of free and enslaved African Americans during the Civil War era
"Alliance of the alienated": Florynce "Flo" Kennedy and black feminist politics in post World War II America by Sherie M Randolph( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation investigates the life and work of Florynce "Flo" Kennedy, an activist and intellectual whose black feminist organizing and political theorizing provides a critical window into postwar radicalism. Kennedy worked in most of the major radical U.S. struggles and organizations of the postwar era, such as, the civil rights, anti-Vietnam war, Black Power and women's liberation movements. She traveled between these movements and organizations appropriating theories and strategies and then extending what she believed to be the best elements of each movement. Kennedy's example demonstrates that the boundaries around organizations and movements were far more porous than scholars have previously conceived
Unusual Sympathies: Settler Imperialism, Slavery, and the Politics of Adoption in the Early U. S. Republic by Dawn Peterson( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
These adoptions did not solely emerge out of the imperial educational fantasies of whites, however. A number of influential American Indian parents sent their sons -- and a few of their daughters -- to live as the temporary "adoptees" of prominent white men so that their children might learn to exploit the gendered and racialized property regimes that increasingly held sway in the post-Revolutionary Atlantic World. As white planters invaded Southeast Indian lands, Southeast Indian women and men especially looked to send sons to white plantation households. These parents speculated that harnessing the racialized and sexualized forms of knowledge that specifically attended slaveholding households would engender political and economic power for themselves, their sons, and their emerging tribal nations
Black slaves : slavery, emancipation, and citizenship in the Native American south by Barbara Krauthamer( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Beating the pen on the drum : a socio-cultural history of Carriacou, Grenada, 1750-1920 by Edwina Ashie-Nikoi( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The central question underpinning this dissertation is a methodological one: how does one successfully incorporate the perspective of the enslaved in historical reconstructions? The dissertation uses Carriacou and its Big Drum ritual to identify African Diasporan rituals as sites of historical memory within which were embedded traces of the various ideational and cultural threads the enslaved wove to create new cultural fabrics. It contends that an excavation of the silent historical pasts from the perspective of the enslaved and their descendants would need to take this into account and would require the examination of ritual documents alongside archival and other evidence. Consequently, the dissertation "reads" Big Drum in addition to primary and published secondary material to write a socio-cultural history of Carriacou. This juxtaposition yields interesting insights into the perspectives of the historical actors being examined and their concept and use of history. This study argues that examining the silences in, and fissures between, the archival and ritual records indicates that the Carriacouan concept and use of "history" is closely tied to the matter of community
Americans in the U.S. south and Mexico: A transnational history of race, slavery, and freedom, 1810--1910 by Sarah Cornell( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This history enhances our understanding of the enormous resilience of binary racial ideologies by illuminating how people responded to and incorporated challenges without fundamentally dislodging those binaries. Moreover, the transnational journeys of black Southerners demonstrate the equally extraordinary power of non-binary racial systems, which still severely limited people's lives
Insurgency at the crossroads: Cuban slaves and the conspiracy of La Escalera, 1841--1844 by Aisha K Finch( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
My dissertation follows the emergence of a dynamic resistance movement in western Cuba, fashioned by enslaved and free people of African descent in the 1840s. Emerging in the sugar heartland of Matanzas, the struggles of 1844 were brutally truncated by a wave of bloodshed and torture known as La Escalera. My work intervenes in a history that has long focused on the prominent historical actors the conspiracy convened, and the international imperial controversy that it sparked, thus marginalizing the slaves themselves until the moment of repression. Using the virtually unexplored testimonies in the Cuban National Archive, I retrieve many of the stories of enslaved witnesses for the first time, and re-center the resistant activities and political cultures of rural Cuban slaves from 1843 to 1844. My dissertation also contests a long historical narrative which argues that the 1844 conspiracy was fabricated to justify a harsh colonial repression. In canvassing the rural plantation world of western Cuba, my research argues that a movement did indeed exist, and it highlights those dimensions of enslaved people's everyday existence that produced a vibrant culture of insurgency in the 1840s
