“We Are All Bound Up Together”: Exploring Poetic Intersections of Gender and Race
Northern Kentucky University
This project is a series of poems collectively conceived as a chapbook, exploring the experience of gender, race, and abolition during 1800’s America. Many of the works have been taken directly from historical texts and reconstructed as erasure and persona poems. By focusing on the role of women in the anti-slavery movement, I hope to illustrate how interconnected the fight for gender and racial equality truly is, and how that fact influenced many female abolitions to fight for the eradication of slavery.
