The BEFORE FREEDOM CAME Exhibit: A Critique


Author(s):
Abstract:
BEFORE FREEDOM CAME is an exhibit originating at the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, VA in 1991, depicting African American life in the south before emancipation. Smith critiques a compact traveling version of the exhibit from the Smithsonian for how well it complements the other exhibits at an historic plantation site, the Mordecai House in Raleigh, NC, and for what it lacks with respect to a deeper economic and agricultural context to some of the exhibit pieces.
