Notorious in the Neighborhood
Sex and Families Across the Color Line in Virginia, 1787-1861
"Laws and cultural norms militated against interracial sex in Virginia before the Civil War. Nonetheless, it was ubiquitous in urban, town, and plantation communities throughout the state. In Notorious in the Neighborhood, Joshua Rothman examines the full spectrum of interracial sexual relationships under slavery-from Thomas Jefferson, Sally Hemings, and the intertwined interracial families of Monticello and Charlottesville, to commercial sex in Richmond, the routinized sexual exploitation of enslaved women, and adultery across the color line.
White Virginians allowed for an astonishing degree of flexibility and fluidity within a seemingly rigid system of race and interracial relations, Rothman argues, and the relationship between law and custom regarding racial intermixture was always shifting. As a consequence, even as whites never questioned their own racial supremacy, the meaning and significance of racial boundaries, racial hierarchy, and ultimately of race itself always stood on unstable ground--a reality that whites understood and about which they demonstrated increasing anxiety as the sectional crisis intensified."
Joshua Rothman is Professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Alabama, where he is also Director of the Frances S. Summersell Center for the Study of the South.

Joshua Bio: “Spiritual Traveler, Mystic, and Rationalist in his late 20’s: Joshua Kent has always been a seeker of Truth. While the workings of the mind have always been an interest of his, having majored in psychology- his true passion lies in where Mysticism and Science meet. Always having a strange predisposition towards philosophy, spirituality, and why none of the religions or mainstream belief systems of earth had the complete package- his journey has always been to lift the Veil and inspire others to do so for themselves.
Besides his education in Psychology, Joshua also has experience in martial arts, energy healing and some of the arts (acting and music). Many strange experiences accompanied this journey, and they only got stranger as time went on- forcing him to evolve his POV and consciousness perpetually. These strange experiences have been accompanying all his life from the interdimensional, extraterrestrial, clairvoyant and many others. There has also been a continuous influx of knowledge that becomes more refined and complex as time moves forward. He has worked hard to translate what are known as Mystery Teachings, which are basic Universal Spiritual truths into a Modern language anybody can understand.
The time for Secrecy is coming to an end! Life Physics is also one of these information beds, and AR was a kind of friend, mentor, and teacher. Worked with him as a student, LPG associate, and potential editor for things he wanted to write but never got to finish. Like other beds of knowledge, Joshua wishes to assist in perpetuating the knowledge AR had to share, and help translate it into a way that is both intriguing and digestible to truth seekers around the world.” -

In the world we live in today, it is easy to see people are turning to idols and away from God. Choosing to live with in the world of self gratification; it is time for all so-called followers of Christ to make a real decision. To live for Jesus is to be truly hated among the world, as it is being made more known everyday. My friend if you love God; it is time to make a Joshua stand!
