  • Carole Emberton’s talk explores freedpeople’s struggles to find, establish, and maintain a sense of home in the decades after emancipation in the nineteenth century. In particular, she will explore the ways that the sites of enslavement—the plantation—continued to shape their understanding of self and family and provide them with a sense of rootedness and belonging despite (or perhaps because of) the historical traumas experienced there.
