s1 e2 — HANNAH MARY TABBS and MARIE ANTOINETTE: Cake, castles, and murder‪!‬ Notorious Women

    • Comedy

This week, Lavetta tells the story of freedwoman turned bad girl Hannah Mary Tabbs, and Miriam tells the story of French queen turned scorned woman, Marie Antoinette.
-----
In this episode, Lavetta introduces the life and crimes of notorious murderess, Hannah Mary Tabbs (American, late 1800s). Tabbs was known for her violent and manipulative behavior — she terrorized her black neighbors with impunity — and she was involved in the dismemberment of her lover's body. But despite her crimes, she managed to manipulate the court system and avoid severe punishment, and sheds light on the racial and gender dynamics of the time and highlights the complexities of Tabbs' character. Next, Miriam introduces the last queen of France, Marie Antoinette (Austrian, 1755–1793), who became infamous for her extravagant lifestyle and perceived indifference to the suffering of the French people. Marie Antoinette's story is one of privilege, power, and downfall, and her actions and reputation contributed to the undoing of the French monarchy and the start of the French Revolution. As the French Revolution unfolded, the monarchy fell, and Marie Antoinette faced trial and execution. Her story serves as a cautionary tale about the consequences of unearned power and the importance of empathy and responsibility.
