Beyond Bondage is a collection of 14 essays that explore the extent to which free women of color could enjoy their freedom in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Due to the racial and gender biases of the era, these women of North and South America had a tenuous hold on their liberty, yet the essays show they often pursued their opportunities with some success.
