Eastern Kentucky University American Slavery Collection
The library of Eastern Kentucky University, has partnered with JSTOR to share their American Slavery Collection, a small cluster of seemingly simple receipts and transactions which do, indeed, call for us to take note. We may not all be men. And we certainly were not present. But the digitization of these documents cries for our attention, and, surely, attention must be paid. This collection contains only sixteen documents, and they came from a variety of sources: a campus museum collection, an auction, a donation from a private collection, etc. But, now assembled, they tell a quiet and cruel story evident in the ways in which lives are listed in ledgers.
