Image of Celia's daughter foregrounded with “pockets of memory” sewn from a handkerchief found in a box of keepsakes belonging to a recently deceased descendant. This paper deploys narrative inquiry and analysis to capture the oral history of two families’ intergenerational memory of an African American woman named Celia who was hanged in 1855 for killing her owner Robert Newsom. It is the first scholarly investigation into the intergenerational memory of both black and white descendants of Robert Newsom, and the first to be conducted utilizing the theory of critical family history. Through the paradigm of Black Feminist Thought, the paper analyzes the power imbalances embedded in narratives about family relations, especially those that conjure race, gender roles, and class produced through oral history.
