Chained in Silence: A Conversation with Talitha LeFlouria
March 23 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
In Chained in Silence, Talitha L. LeFlouria draws from a rich array of primary sources to piece together the stories of African American women ensnared by Georgia’s convict leasing system, recounting what they endured in Georgia’s prison system and what their labor accomplished. LeFlouria argues that African American women’s presence within the convict lease and chain-gang systems of Georgia helped to modernize the South by creating a new and dynamic set of skills for black women.
Join SCHR as we host Dr. Talitha LeFlouria, scholar, author, and authority on the history of Black women and mass incarceration, in conversation with Atteeyah Hollie, Deputy Director at SCHR.
