The Whitney Plantation is a former indigo then sugar plantation located on the west bank of the Mississippi River, in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisiana. The site is now open to the public as a museum with a total focus on slavery. As a site of memory and consciousness, the Whitney Plantation Museum is meant to pay homage to all the people who were enslaved in Louisiana and everywhere else in the United States.
In his lecture, Prof. Seck will present the history of the Whitney Plantation in the wider context of the Atlantic Slave Trade and will touch on many topics related to the cultural legacies of slavery in Louisiana.
