So Far to Leeward: Eliza Moore’s Circuitous Paths to Freedom in the Caribbean

Natasha Lightfoot explores the late 1830s freedom petitions of Eliza Moore, an Antiguan-born domestic who strategically utilized the news of abolition’s 1834 passage in the British Caribbean to facilitate her self-emancipation from the Danish Caribbean. That slender archive, and particularly Moore’s representation of her experiences in a singular self-authored letter to her sister raises intriguing questions about enslaved black mobility coincident with but not within the transatlantic slave trade; and the particular forms of exploitation at work in women’s enslavement. In this letter, Moore explains “how [she] came to be so far to Leeward from [her] native home.”  Eliza Moore’s experiences in kinship with the enslaved domestic women in her life, and as a mother to three sons, at least one of which was conceived via sexual encounters with a more privileged man than herself, informed her life of simultaneous movement and containment. This complex web of relationships supported Moore’s savvy and her ability to secure her liberation.
