The Pursuit of Happiness
The Pursuit of Happiness: Childhood and Slavery in the Age of Revolution

Zoom (registration required)

The narrative of Jean Montague, an enslaved boy in Paris, raises important questions about freedom and fugitivity in 18th-century France. Montague’s encounters with American statesmen and the French judicial system illuminate the ways that enslaved people contested power and personhood in France as both the site of their enslavement and a land of freedom.
