Abstract

On plantation sites throughout the United States, slavery is commodified in a way that promotes antebellum nostalgia. On many plantations, these sites are celebrating the worth of the plantation without realizing that the value comes off of the backs of slave labor. This research focuses on three plantation sites throughout New Orleans and asks, through the use of antebellum nostalgia, are the ramifications of the legacy of slavery being used as a commodity on plantation sites still, in present day?
