The Limits and Liberty of Loyalty: Black Loyalism in the Book of Negroes (Article)
Title: The Limits and Liberty of Loyalty: Black Loyalism in the Book of Negroes
Author: Kacy Dowd Tillman
Abstract: This article concerns the limits and liberty of loyalism in the Book of Negroes, which was a book of ledgers and petitions created during the American Revolution to track Black bodies. The article argues that this text was a source of agency as well as surveillance for Black loyalists attempting to claim citizenship during the war, and it provides a methodology of approach for reading this text and others like it. This article has no journal title or URL because the research for it is on hold while I await Covid travel restrictions to lift so that I can finish my research at the National Archives outside of London. I was instructed to upload the preliminary article here as proof of progress. I will submit it to a journal after I visit the archive in June 2022 and will upload the final version at that time.
