Amy Johnson publishes article in the Journal of Caribbean History

Amy Johnson, assistant professor of History and the Elon Core Curriculum, published an article entitled “Gradations of Freedom: The Maroons of Jamaica, 1798-1821” in the Journal of Caribbean History.

Dr. Amy Johnson, an assistant professor of History and the Elon Core Curriculum, seeks to embody the Elon teacher-scholar model. In addition to teaching about the Maroons of Jamaica in several history courses, she recently published her third academic article on the subject. This article entitled “Gradations of Freedom: The Maroons of Jamaica, 1798-1821” is in the current volume of the Journal of Caribbean History. Dr. Johnson argues that not all members of the Jamaican Maroon communities experienced freedom equally and then places the little-known practice of captive-holding among the Maroons within the larger contexts of bondage in pre-colonial West Africa and colonial Jamaican society.
