Join us for an enlightening and informative lecture by Dr. Karen B. Cook-Bell on her book Running from Bondage: Enslaved Women and Their Remarkable Fight for Freedom in Revolutionary America
Running from Bondage tells the compelling stories of enslaved women, who comprised one-third of all runaways, and the ways in which they fled or attempted to flee bondage during and after the Revolutionary War. Karen Cook Bell's enlightening and original contribution to the study of slave resistance in eighteenth-century America explores the individual and collective lives of these women and girls of diverse circumstances, while also providing details about what led them to escape. Dr. Cook-Bell, is the founding Director, Du Bois Center for the Study of the Black Experience, the Director, Black Women in War and Freedom Project, and an Associate Professor of History at Bowie State University's, Department of History and Government.
