During the summer of 1800, slaves in and around Richmond conspired to overthrow slavery. This book uses GabrielOs Conspiracy, and the evidence produced during its repression, to expose the processes through which Virginians of African descent built an oppositional culture. Sidbury portrays this culture, and the multiple, sometimes conflicting, senses of identity that emerged among the people of the rapidly-growing state capital. The book offers an alternative interpretation of the Virginia that was home to many of the Founding Fathers.
