Here's the new book from the Tracing Center. It's intended as a how-to manual for public history professionals interpreting slavery at historic sites and museums, but also delves into issues relating to how to teach slavery, race, and privilege and how the learning process unfolds in these difficult areas.
I posted this announcement over at the Tracing Center earlier this week. We're pleased to announce the release of the Tracing Center's new book, Interpreting

Story
Introduction
I'm the executive director of the Tracing Center on Histories and Legacies of Slavery, based in Boston, Mass. I speak regularly about the nation's history of slavery and race, and about contemporary issues of diversity, race, privilege. I was the principal historical consultant to the PBS documentary "Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North," and I also appear in the film as a descendant of the DeWolf slave-trading family of Bristol, R.I.
