He was the second son of four boys and five girls born to Joseph and Rose Kennedy.

Representations of Slave Women in Discourses on Slavery and Abolition, 1780â??1838 (Routledge Studies in Slave and Post-slave Societies and Cultures)

by Henrice Altink

This book analyzes textual representations of Jamaican slave women in three contexts–motherhood, intimate relationships, and work–in both pro- and antislavery writings. Altink examines how British abolitionists and pro-slavery activists represented the slave women to their audiences and explains not only the purposes that these representations served, but also their effects on slave women’s lives.
