  • Description: A verbatim account and supplementary documentation exists of a legal case heard in St Kitts in 1753: the defendant, accused of murder, was white, and unusually in such a case, evidence was heard from slaves. The article draws on the case and its reporting to tease out issues of slavery, race and the law, and to examine broader questions of identity, subjectivity and hegemony in the early modern Atlantic world.
