The NY Times posted this article about the importance of Slave graves as a means of telling slave stories with objects outside of historic plantations and slave quarters.
When the AASLH shared it, there was a comment about the cities in which the graves are located having an interesting opportunity to create a larger living museum. The poster suggested a walking tour of African American history to include the graves.
I’m wondering how much preservation work it would take to allow such an idea to take shape? Or would this be an instance in which too much handle puts an object in danger of losing its integrity, like the brick fingerprints at Stagville.
