This paper presents an interview discussion of race and slavery in Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights (1847) in relation to Adam Low’s documentary, A Regular Black: The Hidden Wuthering Heights (2010) and Michael Stewart’s novel, Ill Will: The Untold Story of Heathcliff (2018). Our discussion originally took place after a screening of Low’s documentary on the first day of the conference, ‘Emily Brontë: A Peculiar Music’, held in September 2018 in York to mark Emily’s bicentenary. The material presented here is based on a recording of our evening event, but we continued our discussion afterwards in person and via email. Where possible we have nuanced our original talk and developed aspects of the discussion.
