Portfolio 6

In constructing my exhibit I considered the areas of interest which fit within the topic I had chosen, The Lives of Females in Slavery in the United States of America. For much of my education on the topic of slavery in the United States, the focus has often been on slavery as an institution and not so much on the individual lives of people (other than the historical figures whose stories have been told). Due to this, I would use personal stories and not just a generalized narrative. In my exhibit I would like to focus on both their work (whether be field or domestic labor) and their personal lives away from that work. As a conclusion I would want to look at how the institution of slavery has influenced the lives of African American women since its abolition.

A rough draft of the exhibit organization.
