Women in the Middle Passage: Gender, Slavery, and the Problem of Writing History

Jennifer L. Morgan, Ph.D., presents the 2017 John Hope Franklin Distinguished Lecture.

Dr. Morgan, professor of history and social and cultural analysis and chair of social and cultural analysis at New York University, is working to give voice to enslaved women and children. Join us as she shares her findings in a free lecture on campus, “Women in the Middle Passage: Gender, Slavery, and the Problem of Writing History,” as part of our Black History Month events series.

A signing of Dr. Morgan’s book, Laboring Women: Gender and Reproduction in New World Slavery, will follow.

The John Hope Franklin Distinguished Lecture is Co-Sponsored by the Center for African, Black and Caribbean Studies.
This event is free and open to the public.
