Examining Women & Slave Mutinies, 1740-1840

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



Abstract:

The focus in this paper is on enslaved African women’s experiences during the Middle Passage. More specifically, it is of their resistance on board slave ships directly bound for the Caribbean. I plan to present and examine empirical evidence of women’s direct involvement with slave ship mutinies. Ship captains, doctors onboard slave ships and enslaved Africans that had direct knowledge of slave mutinies were reviewed. A database containing 360 slave ships that had revolts was also reviewed. The objective here is three fold: First, add to the scholarship of enslaved women onboard slave ships. Secondly, move women from being passive helpers to active revolutionaries. And third, is to analyze the actions of these enslaved women through an Afrocentric paradigm that does not initially position women as weaker helpmates to men.
