Re: "Free" vs. "Freed".
In Response To: "Free" vs. "Freed". ()

Carmen,

Taking your definitions of free and freed people of color into consideration, what methodologies would you suggest in researching or discussing research relating to the two groups?

What are the differences and are there any similarities in researching the two groups?

At what times is it most important to distinguish between the two (during the antebellum period), and where was such a distinction most profound (records-wise)?

Where do the lines blur between the two groups, if ever, and at what time and in what place(s) did it occur?
