Gender was a decisive force in slave society. Slave men's experiences differed from thos of slave women, who were exploited in both reproductive and productive capacities. They did not figure prominently in revolts because they engaged in less confrontational methods of resistance, emphasizing creative struggle to survive dehumanization and abuse.

Runaway Reward Notice

Date:
1791
Creator:
Charles Carnan Ridgely

Charles Carnan Ridgely was seeking the return of his slave Bateman and offered a reward that increased in size as the distance from Hampton grew. Remarkably, despite his considerable height and history as a runaway, Bateman later became a most favored slave as a jockey for Ridgely’s racehorses. He was even given a horse of his own to ride.
