Virginia Tech history professor Beverly Bunch-Lyons discussed women in slavery, and their methods of resistance during a university course on black history. Her lecture “Black Women, Slavery, and Resistance in America” examines how the experiences of enslaved women differed from those of enslaved men and how these women resisted slavery in four major categories: everyday resistance; running away and marooning; gynecological resistance; and anti-intuitive resistance. During this class session Professor Bunch-Lyons and her students read first-hand accounts from former slave women about their experiences. close
