“Free Issues”: Free Women of Color in Nat Turner’s Southampton County presented by Dr. Vanessa Holden

Dr. Holden’s current work on Southampton County foregrounds the community that produced the rebellion to better understand the local experience of loss, grief, and slave resistance. Central to her approach is the place of African American women, free and enslaved, in that community. Dr. Holden’s presentation will explore what the lives of free women of color teach us about the Southampton Rebellion of 1831.
