Event Description:
Confederate Currency: The Color of Money, presented by BB&T, investigates the importance of slavery in the economy of the South. Artist John W. Jones researched and documented over 126 images of slavery that were depicted on Confederate and Southern States money. The juxtaposition of the framed Confederate currencies with the acrylic paintings inspired by the slave images on the currencies makes a very powerful statement on the contribution of enslaved Africans to the American economy.
