"Landscape of Slavery is a landmark study that shows how the plantation has endured in the American consciousness as a nostalgic memory for whites and as an open wound for blacks. For more than three centuries, artists have captured the plantation in works that are both profoundly moving and deeply disturbing. Through their art, this Janus-faced memory of the American South and its black and white people touches our heart, as if three centuries were only a moment past. The images in this collection and the eloquent essays that accompany them remind us that our memory of the plantation is contested along racial lines that continue to divide our nation."--William R. Ferris, senior associate director, Center for the Study of the American South, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
