Description

MD Emancipation Day Program: Bound in Wedlock: Slave and Free Black Marriage in the Nineteenth Century by Tera W. Hunter

Saturday, Nov 3, 1pm

Tera W. Hunter offers the first comprehensive history of African American marriage in the nineteenth century. She reveals the practical ways couples adopted, adapted, or rejected white Christian ideas of marriage, creatively setting their own standards for conjugal relationships under conditions of uncertainty and cruelty. A book signing will follow. Tera W. Hunter is a Professor of History and African American Studies at Princeton University.
