Delia’s Tears is available now!

26 April 2010

Launched on 26 April, Delia’s Tears can now be ordered from American booksellers. Weaving together the histories of race, science and photography in nineteenth-century America, Delia’s Tears tells the story behind a group of photographs depicting slaves from South Carolina plantations.

Publisher’s Weekly calls Delia’s Tears a “well-researched history [that] paints a rich panorama of the mental world of slavery—the slaves’ anxiety and humiliation, the planters’ callousness and hypocrisy, the corrupt pseudoscience that explained it all as natural law rather than human oppression.”
