What is Interpreting Slave Life?

Good question! For me, it’s what I do every day for a living. For you, it’s where you’ve come to learn about how slavery, which has numerous emotions attached to it, is presented to you, the public. Ever wonder how an African American woman gets involved with such a line of work and why she would do it? Look no further. Ever wonder how living history sites handle addressing such a difficult past? Look no further. Ever wonder what would roll through the mind of an historian who sees how slavery has shaped the lives of so many, yet finds it pushed to theĀ back-burnerĀ all too often? Look.No.Further. I’ve got that and more here.
