Disability Services and Humanities offer lecture
Join the Departments of Disability Services and the Humanities when they present a
lecture titled “Joice Heth and Jim Crow: The Dual Stigma of Race and Disability in
Antebellum America,” Wednesday, November 20 at 2:00 p.m. in Franklin Hall 110.
The presentation will be made by Dea Boster, Ph.D., instructor in the Humanities, who will discuss the layers of meaning that were ascribed
to race and disability, two concepts that were mutually constitutive in the nineteenth-century
United States. As the notoriety of Joice Heth and Jim Crow spread throughout the nation,
so did discussions and portrayals of disabled slaves. Many nineteenth-century writings
associated physical and mental disabilities with weakness and dependence, immorality,
dishonor, and the grotesque, and these associations influenced the “dual stigma” of
race and disability.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
