Abstract

Remember Me to Miss Louisa is a groundbreaking study of the often-times oversimplified intimate rela-tionships between women of African descent and white men in the antebel-lum Midwest. By defining intimacy as “emotional and physical closeness between two human beings,” Green argues for the prevalence, importance, and intergenerational persistence of such unions between white male enslavers and the black or mixed-race female partners they oftentimes freed (p. 8).
