“Bound as Fast in Wedlock as a Slave Can Be:
African-American Marriage, Slavery and Freedom”

Tera Hunter, Ph.D., is a professor of history and African American studies at Princeton University. She is currently writing a book on African American marriages in the 19th century. What did marriage mean to the enslaved? Exploring marriage among enslaved, ex-slaves and free blacks in the 1800s, the lecture also explores recent marital problems in post-racial America.

Sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Distinguished Lecture Series and the Center for African, Black and Caribbean Studies
