“It is in all of us to defy expectations, to go into the world and to be brave. to want, to need, to hunger for adventures. to embrace change and chance and risk so that we may breathe and know what it is to be free.” - original quote by Mae Chevrette.
Drapetomania was a conjectural mental illness that, in American physician Samuel A. Cartwright hypothesized to cause Black slaves to flee captivity. It has since been debunked as pseudoscience and part of the edifice of scientific racism.
