520    "This work explores free and enslaved African Americans' 
       involvement in a broad range of civil actions in the 
       Natchez district of Mississippi and Louisiana between 1800
       and 1860. Though the antebellum southern courts have long 
       been understood as institutions supporting the class 
       interests and the racial ideologies of the planter and 
       merchant elite, Kimberly Welch shows how black litigants 
       found ways to advocate for themselves even within a racist
       system. To understand their success, Welch argues that we 
       must understand the language that they used--the language 
       of property, in particular. Because private property and 
       slavery were fundamentally linked in the minds of slave 
       owners, the term 'property' contained a group of metaphors
       that underwrote a set of white, male claims about autonomy,
       membership, citizenship, and personhood"--|cProvided by
