Sarah Haley, "Gender, Punishment, and Jim Crow Modernity"

Petteruti Lounge, Stephen Robert '62 Center, 75 Waterman Street

Black women’s imprisonment in the South during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was central to the development of carceral capitalism and consolidated normative conceptions of race, gender, and sexuality. This talk will examine how the criminalization of black women shaped the development of modern political, economic, and cultural life under Jim Crow, while also considering women’s resistance and refusal in southern prisons as practices of black radicalism and abolitionist feminism.
