Marks shows that when Black people attempted to better their lives, they challenged extant racialized practices and the ideology of white supremacy that dominated both Charleston, South Carolina and Cartahena, Colombia. Still, white leaders in both cities approached Black freedom in distinct ways. Marks’s work opens the door for further exploration, which is a testament “to the successes of Marks’s comparative approach for examining local histories of race and slavery.”
