Since Hollywood’s earliest films, rare cinematic depictions of slave dwellings have provided an image of slave habitations for many Americans. From Edwin Porter’s 1903 silent film portrayal of Uncle Tom’s Cabin through director Steve McQueen’s 2013 award-winning film 12 Years a Slave, museum educator Julie Rose, Ph.D., will explore how slave life dwellings represented on film changed over the century.
