Jezebel women in slavery

Enslaved women known as “Jezebels” were sometimes raped and then accused of being promiscuous.

A certain group of enslaved women were deemed “Jezebels” by their owners. These women were assumed to be even more promiscuous than the other enslaved Black women and were often subjected to sexual abuse multiple times throughout the day.
