In More than Chains and Toil, Joan Martin explores the experiences of enslaved women and the realities of their social world to uncover the interrelationships among moral agency, work, and human meaning. She then reflects ethically on the implications such a distinct perspective on labor might have for women in contemporary African American communities and for broader discussions about the meaning of work in American society.

Joan M. Martin is William W. Rankin Associate Professor of Christian Social Ethics at Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusettes.
