KSC Seminar/Webinar Series: Getting Away with Murder: Violence and the Construction of Race in Eighteenth-Century New Hampshire

Wednesday, · -

Presented by Tim Hastings, graduate student, History & Archives: What can the experiences of people of color in eighteenth-century New Hampshire teach us about the origins of systemic racism in the United States? This presentation examines archival sources that document the way in which violence was used in the construction of racial categories, and in particular the creation of a common white identity, during the second half of the eighteenth century. It will illustrate how white supremacy became embedded in the fabric of post-Revolutionary America.
