November 6, 2013
Time:3:30-5 p.m.
Description:"'For Sale a Young Negro Woman': Auctions, Breeding & Enslaved Women in Early America" is a colloquium presented by Daina Berry, associate professor of history and African and African Diaspora studies at The University of Texas at Austin.

Berry examines the auction and sale experiences of enslaved women and girls in the United States domestic market. The recent historiography of gender and slavery reveals that women faced physical and sexual inspections on the auction block that some might characterize as exploitation or harassment. Likewise, studies of the domestic slave trade confirm that enslaved men also found sales humiliating.
