Celia, a slave. Melton McLaurin.

Celia, a slave

Athens: The University of Georgia Press, 1991. xi, 148p., first printing, very good hardcover in dj.

McLaurin narrates the story of Celia---a young slave who, sexually abused by her master, killed him in self-defense---within the context of the mores and "tensions that strained the fabric of antebellum southern society," most importantly, those relating to gender and the lack of protections for slaves.
