Black Body Politics and Self-Care: Slave Dress as Resistance in Caribbean and Canadian Slavery
Please join us as Dr. Charmaine Nelson explores slave dress, cultural preservation and self-determination in Canada and British Caribbean islands like Jamaica and St. Vincent. Recuperating the histories of three enslaved black women named Dutchess, Florimell, and Cash, and one enslaved black man named Andrew, Nelson will look at how they acquired the means and materials to adorn, protect and beautify their bodies in the midst of endemic material deprivation, cultural prohibitions, economic disenfranchisement, and pervasive physical violence.
