This poster project is an illustration of the research into the life and history of Elizabeth Gloucester; one of the richest African American women of the 19th century. Although women were absent from the convention movement their presence and significance pervade the social and political landscape of the time. This research draws upon African American newspapers, scholarly journals, and census records in order to reclaim the missing history of Elizabeth Gloucester.
