Forging Freedom: Black Women and the Pursuit of Liberty in Antebellum Charleston
For black women in antebellum Charleston, freedom was not a static legal category but a fragile and contingent experience. A deeply researched social history, Forging Freedom reveals the ways in which black women in Charleston acquired, defined, and defended their own vision of freedom.
Drawing on legislative and judicial materials, probate data, tax lists, church records, family papers, and more, Myers creates detailed portraits of individual women while exploring how black female Charlestonians sought to create a fuller freedom by improving their financial, social, and legal standing. Examining both those who were officially manumitted and those who lived as free persons but lacked official documentation, Myers reveals that free black women filed lawsuits and petitions, acquired property (including slaves), entered into contracts, paid taxes, earned wages, attended schools, and formed familial alliances with wealthy and powerful men, black and white--all in an effort to solidify and expand their freedom. Never fully free, black women had to depend on their skills of negotiation in a society dedicated to upholding both slavery and patriarchy. Forging Freedom thus examines the many ways in which Charleston's black women crafted a freedom of their own design instead of accepting the limited existence imagined for them by white Southerners.
Amrita Chakrabarti Myers earned her doctorate in American History from Rutgers University. A historian of the black female experience, she is interested in race, gender, sexuality, rights, freedom, and citizenship and the ways in which these constructs intersect with one another in the lives of black women in the Old South. She is currently Associate Professor of History and Gender Studies at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.

Join us this week as we welcome the country pop music duo, Gracie and Joey. Gracie Varga and Joey Jacob met while singing at their church. They realized quickly that their voices and musical desires blended very well. With the desire to move into the country genre they began putting their lyrics and music together. They soon realized that the songs that were difficult to write on their own, were easy to finish together. Their music has a pop and modern country feel similar to Lady Antebellum. Catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics can be heard on the EP “Runaways”, which they recorded with Billboard charting platinum producers Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount. The music video for their single “Lovin' You” produced by Revolution Pictures, the same team behind videos for Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, helps put to motion the music they like to share. They have been performing around Nashville and into Georgia and Florida. Their heart-felt lyrics and catchy melodies along with their blended vocals have captured the attention of all who hear them. We will talk to Gracie and Joey about their upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at their music, feature their latest songs, and ask them to share their message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Gracie and Joey at http://www.gracieandjoeymusic.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with with them during the show (718) 766-4193.
