Abstract

I investigate how plantation museums in Virginia that focus on the colonial or early republic periods represent the lives of enslaved people, or how they fail to do so, and why. Through museum visits I examine critically how plantation museums deal with the complexities of slavery, the lives of enslaved people, and what role this plays in the overall interpretation of the museum.
