Slavery & Sexual Violence. The Case of Missouri v. Celia, a Slave

For the past three years, I’ve been working with The Celia Project, a research and writing collaboration between scholars of history, law, and literature. Our broad subject is the history of slavery and sexual violence and the case of Missouri v. Celia, a Slave is at the center of our inquiry. When C-SPAN’s American History TV asked if I would present a classroom lecture for broadcast, I proposed that they visit my African American women’s history course to record my lecture on Celia’s case. It was a first for the Lectures in History series, and my students were terrific!
