Unfreedom examines the lived experience of slaves in eighteenth-century Boston. It argues slavery was part of a continuum of unfreedom and was one of many forms of oppression. In this hierarchical world, enslaved Bostonians pushed for autonomy, protected their families and communities, and demanded a place in society.

Jared Hardesty is Assistant Professor of History at Western Washington University. A native of Ohio, Hardesty received his PhD from Boston College in 2014. He lives with his wife Dana and their dog Georgia in Bellingham, WA.
