"More Than Chains And Toil" is a probing and perceptive analysis of work in the experience of African American women. Even though forced labor was the essence of slavery, few have studied the labor of slave women from the perspective of women themselves. The author clarifies and analyzes the meanings that the women bestowed on their labors - meanings that constitute a rich resource of moral value for all who read this book.
In "More than Chains and Toil," Joan Martin explores the experiences of enslaved women and the realities of their social world to uncover the interrelationships among moral agency, work, and human meaning. She then reflects ethically on the implications such a distinct perspective on labor might have for women in contemporary African American communities and for broader discussions about the meaning of work in American society.
