Gender, Kinship, and Capitalism in the Early Black Atlantic

Reckoning with Slavery

Book Pages: 320 Illustrations: 12 illustrations Published: June 2021


“Jennifer L. Morgan examines the transition to racialized slavery in the early modern Atlantic world with innovative research methods and original analysis. She brilliantly accounts for the emergence of an unholy alliance between a novel proficiency with numbers and the hierarchical classification of human difference, which helped to make kinship into a commodity. This is essential reading for anyone who wonders how black humanity ceased to matter to some, and why centuries later we must still proclaim the worth of black lives.” — Vincent Brown, author of Tacky’s Revolt: The Story of an Atlantic Slave War
