In colonial America, slaveowners sometimes published advertisements looking for runaways. These can be used to get more information about those enslaved in the American colonies and their experiences. You are expected to make use of relevant information in the Nash text in writing this paper. You must also listen to the audio and read the materials assigned for the September 27-8 class session on analyzing runaway slave advertisements. The audio and powerpoint for this class session will be taken down at 5:00pm on September 28th so be sure to listen to it before then. You will be working with 18th-century advertisements available on two websites: 1. “The Geography of Slavery in Virginia” http://www2.vcdh.virginia.edu/gos/browse/browse1730s.php 2. “North Carolina Runaway Slave Advertisements” http://libcdm1.uncg.edu/cdm/landingpage/collection/RAS The focus of this assignment is on ads for runaway slaves. Some of the ads deal with servants (meaning indentured servants) or convicts. These were generally white people, and the focus of the assignment is to look at those enslaved, who were African or African-American. You must select ads that date from before December 31st 1770. The 1770 cut-off date is because the goal here is to focus on the colonial period; by 1770 we are moving into the period of the American Revolution. If you use ads that date after December 31 1770, or ads about servants or convicts, you will lose points on your grade for this assignment. This assignment must discuss the following: 1. Select three advertisements dating before December 31st 1770. What kinds of information do these ads contain? What do they tell us about the condition of the slave, what the slaveowner knows about the slave and anything else? If mentioned, how is the race of the runaway slave described? Choose wisely! 2. Select three advertisements (these can be the ones used in answering question 1, or you can use different ones). What can you infer about what might have motivated the slave to run away? And is there any information that might indicate whether they might succeed in their escape attempt? Again, choose wisely! How to cite these sources: From the Geography of Slavery Database: “Runaway Slave: Jasper.” Virginia Gazette (Hunter), Williamsburg, August 14, 1752. The Geography of Slavery. http://www2.vcdh.virginia.edu/gos/search/relatedAd.php?adFile=rg52.xml&adId=v1752080116. From the North Carolina Runaway Slave Advertisements Database: “Five Pounds Reward.” North-Carolina Magazine or Universal Intelligencer [New Bern], July 6, 1764. North Carolina Runaway Slave Advertisements, 1751-1840. http://libcdm1.uncg.edu/cdm/singleitem/collection/RAS/id/1968/rec/2 The link provided in your bibliographic entry should be to the ad itself, not the larger search page. Always provide the date and name of the newspaper the ad came from. A good bibliographic entry should make it easy for the professor to find the source you are citing. Use your common sense to craft a shorter citation for use in your text. For example (Jasper, August 1752) or (Five Pounds, 1764), which should direct me to the correct bibliographic entry at the end of your paper.
