Cabildos Speaker Series: Danielle Terrazas Williams - Who Dared to Question the Word of a Priest? Free Black Women and Social Capital in 17th Century Mexico

Danielle Terrazas Williams is assistant professor of history at Oberlin College. Her work focuses on African-descended women in colonial Mexico. She is currently completing a book project titled "Capital of Free Women: Race, Legitimacy, and Liberty in Colonial Mexico," which challenges traditional narratives of racial hierarchies and gendered mobility by focusing on Mexico’s understudied period from 1580-1730.

The Cabildos Speaker Series was established as a means to:

• Listen to Black voices
• Foreground cutting edge scholarship
• Contextualize United States history in an African Diaspora context
• Highlight the links between academic research and activism.

Sponsored by the School of History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies and anonymous donors to the History Program at Oregon State University.
