African American Women Refugees Duke University history professor Thavolia Glymph talked about what happened to former slave women upon escape or emancipation from their former owners over the course of the Civil War. Though their experiences were marked by perpetual transience, Ms. Glymph explains, these women formed new bonds of friendship and support during a turbulent time when many of them were separated from their families and established networks.
