How to Write About Historic Plantations

In my previous post I mentioned that an online conversation among Twitterstorians had covered the subject of how media cover the sale of historic plantations. While the conversation covers plantations of many locations or based in cotton or sugar, the emphasis of late tied to the sales of rice plantations in the lowcountry.

This week, a trio of historians penned an Opinion piece for the Washington Post addressing the subject with cogency. Please see the clearly titled Op/Ed here: Portraying plantations as luxury real estate downplays the legacy of slavery.
