Ancestors of Worthy Life

Teresa S. Moyer

University Press of Florida

Chapter 1 introduces the theoretical and methodological approaches of the book. It discusses the relationships between plantation museums, racism, and social justice. Racism played—and continues to play—a significant role in the history of Mount Clare and Carroll Park. This chapter outlines the role of race in history, the history of slavery and freedom at Mount Clare, and a charge for change to be more inclusive of diversity in the site’s interpretation.
