Professor Emerita of Theater, Film and Media Studies (Dance) Merideth Taylor’s new book “Listening In: Echoes and Artifacts from Maryland's Mother County,” (University of Virginia Press, 2018) is featured in the Washington Post.

 

According to the article, “Her images are accompanied by imagined narrative vignettes for each property, where fictional occupants speak to one another. The stories are drawn from oral histories that she has conducted, including those of African Americans whose not-too-distant forebears were sharecroppers. Their ancestors were slaves in the tobacco fields.”
