Talitha LeFlouria’s Chained in Silence: Black Women and Convict Labor in
the New South ambitiously takes on the task of highlighting the roles that
black women played in the modernization of the Georgian economy and culture
in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; roles that were products of
material and ideological circumstances as well as acts of resistance
against hegemonic class and racial forces. LeFlouria carves out a space for
her study of black women distinct from other scholarship on oppressive
convict labor systems in the New South. Relying on a detailed reading of
periodical records, primary sources, and historiography, LeFlouria conveys
the unique economic and cultural experiences of black women in Georgia, who
through choice and circumstance, end up involuntarily providing an
invisible, exploitive form of labor for rebuilding the Empire State of the
South. Georgia’s particular system of convict labor –a partnership between
the state and capitalist interests to develop and sustain an exploitative,
profitable, and renewable labor force –comes to serve as a way of
modernizing state and private institutions through the continued oppression
of black women’s labor, bodies, and identity.
