This lecture will focus on gender, race, and the law to explain how the legal and cultural practices that governed women of European descent in colonial Virginia led to the creation of slave codes that impacted the life, death, and reproduction of enslaved women. Enslaved women did not yield willingly to these laws. Professor Haines will explain how enslaved women during this time period used the courts to fight for freedom and recognition of their humanity.
