Rethinking Antebellum Slave Families and Communities
Paper Proposal
Association for the Study of African American History and Life

Stephanie J. Shaw

Discussions of antebellum slavery have given considerable attention to slave families and communities. Another, almost totally discreet discussion has focused on the slave trade. And partially as a result of an almost totally different discussion of the African diaspora, most recent discussions have put the slave trade in the context of migrations and have incorporated aspects of the domestic slave trade. This paper aims to bring those discussions together by focusing on elderly slave women who often went missing during the movement of slaves from the middle Atlantic to the deep South gulf states.
These elderly women, elders in general, had occupied important (perhaps central) roles in their original communities. They cared for children, transmitted family and community history and culture, counseled younger adults, and mediated disputes between blacks and whites and among members of their own community. This paper will address the full potential impact of the “disappearance” of these women from these communities as they moved south and west.
