From 1830 until well after the Civil War, free and fugitive Blacks came together in state and national political "Colored Conventions." This project seeks to not only learn about the lives of these male delegates, the places where they met and the social networks that they created but to also account for the crucial work done by Black women in the broader social networks that made these conventions possible.
