Laboring in Intimacy: Labor Relations and Intimacy among Black Women and White Women in Nineteenth-Century African American Women’s Narratives

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The narratives of Mattie J. Jackson, Elizabeth Keckley, Louisa Picquet, and Eliza Potter, all set in major U. S. cities, demonstrate Black women as agents of their own labor, exploiting urban spaces that afforded interactions with multiple clients, employers, and slaveowners, interactions that yielded freedom, agency, and economic sustenance. Of equal importance, these narratives document relations between Black and white women in the urban cultural landscape where Black women’s labor commands white women’s wealth, sometimes their respect but rarely their regard as equals. This presentation exposes the complex exchange and the machinations Black women performed to succeed in these environments.
