Description

The Collegian article “Richmond’s Slave History Depicted,” published February 18th, 1988, describes an exhibit held at the Valentine Museum called “In Bondage and Freedom: Antebellum Black Life in Richmond.” The exhibit highlights the necessity of black people to develop the city of Richmond both economically and culturally. “There was not well defined segregation, Lankford said, but Richmond still had racism.” Judy Lankford, the former director of development at the Valentine Museum said, “Slavery is slavery.” The article also highlights Eyre Crowe’s painting from 1853 called “After the Sale: Slaves Going South From Richmond,” depicting children being sold near the James River. Finally the article describes articles held in the museum that told the story of the lives of free and enslaved black people.
