Summary

This chapter examines the paradigmatic discourses about emotions of White abolitionism and during the “disintegration” of legal slavery in the Atlantic world. This chapter highlights the mutations of ideas of “feelings” in the "post-emancipation” era and their role in the continuation of slavery, while also addressing the escalation of emotional archetypes of race and slavery in twentieth-century media.
