This project examines healing, specifically for Black women, under a slavery context. Slavery is an institution that inhibits even the creation of self, which in turn stops the process of healing from trauma. So this research looks into Black women who were able to create self, community, or even art. And through these outlets, have created a restorative path to healing for themselves and others. By focusing on the lives of Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Edmonia Lewis, this paper will examine the paths to restoration made by women under the constricting system of Slavery as well as its aftermath conditions.
