The National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center, located in Wilberforce, Ohio, sponsored a 1992 exhibit entitled "Before Freedom Came: African-American Life in the Antebellum South," the most comprehensive ever organized on the topic of slavery. Coordinated by the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, it reflected virtually every aspect of African-Americans' life in the South from 1790 to 1865: the work they did, what they owned, their relationships among themselves and with whites, the ways in which slaves resisted the system and participated in the Civil War. A 219-page catalog, fully illustrated and annotated, contained essays by scholars in history, material culture, folklore, and archeology. For more information, call 1-800- BLK-HIST.
