Professor Jennifer Van Horn has recently published an article in the Junto, a group blog run by early Americanists. Van Horn’s article, “An Indian Chintz Gown: Slavery and Fashion” examines a particular incident involving an enslaved woman named Charlotte, who wore a fashionable dress once owned by a white woman. Van Horn’s description of the event helps to reveal the importance of fashion in early America, as well as its racial underpinnings.
