de Christopher H. Bouton
Sobre o livro
This study examines how slaves in antebellum Virginia, through physical confrontations with whites, fought to reassert some measure of control over their day-today lives. The author analyzes how while this violence came at a high cost, it also ensured the preservation of their humanity and set limits on their enslavement.
