As part of the “Centering the Lives of Black Women and Girls” series, Jasmine Syedullah will give this lecture. This talk focuses on the writings of Harriet Jacobs, a formerly enslaved mother and abolitionist, and explores traditional patriarchal relationships to property, rights, and freedom. Syedullah is a political theorist and scholar in the radical intellectual tradition, whose research focuses on figurations of freedom and captivity from the plantation to the prison.
