Slaves and Slaveholders: The Washingtons of Wessyngton

Tennessee State Museum Foundation

The project will produce a curatorial package for an exhibition about slavery in Tennessee, focusing on the Washingtons, a former slave-owning family from Robertson County with some of the most complete, surviving accounts.  Funds will go for honoraria for four scholars to create the interpretive themes, artifact list, primary and supporting resources, graphics, and primary label text.
