Re: "Ownership" of and access to slave data /recor

"..Many libraries and museums freely display photos and documents from the slave period - particularly around black history month - but what efforts are they making to find the real owners of these records - the descendants?

I guess I'm just tired of pictures of "unidentified slaves" etc. being used to promote shows and exhibits (pay to enter- pay to join the museum or society etc) - with no funding going into researching what happened to them - or who they were..."


I feel you on this, however, that is not their job. Let them do their core functions - getting those documents and photos in front of as many eyes as they can.

That funding you're referring to should be in the form of GRANTS to!
