Tell Us Who You Are

For generations after the civil war, colleges across the american south opened their campuses to memorials to the lost cause of the confederacy. Likewise, some institutions, like historically black colleges, erected memorials to refute the white supremacist claims of the confederacy’s post-war defenders and celebrators.

The Locating Slavery’s Legacies database (LSLdb) is a repository of information about the dynamic histories of those monuments and memorials: those that enmeshed American higher education in the racist campaigns of the Lost Cause and those that resisted its racist premises.

The database is led by the Roberson Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. At present, its archive is ‘crowd-sourced’ by teams of instructors, archivists, and students from seven colleges and universities.

The number of contributors is growing. Join us, and help us build this digital resource by adding memorials from your campuses to the collection.
