One thought on “2020 Virtual Conference: Christopher Allan Black

  1. This is a deeply thought-provoking look at an African American male’s experience of incarceration, slavery under the guise of indentured servitude, and so many other kinds of brutal oppression. What an act of resistance even to write this prison memoir. One question: How common was indentured servitude in the 1840s? Would the reason for Reed’s indenture have been unusual? Thank you!
