Abstract

This book chapter presents the life of Mary Ann Shadd, a 19th century Black abolitionist, from the perspective of the author's personal history of slavery and migration across the Black diaspora. It explores themes of erasure in history and the politics of recognition, drawing on Cedric Robinson's concept of the Black radical tradition. It forms part of an initiative to foreground women in international law, but charts a distinctive path from other women presented in the book who may be said to have contributed to international legal rules.
