Off this morning to the dedication of the Love House, the new home of the Center for the Study of the American South. (Yes, double entendres abound here).
It’s a beautiful spring day in Carolina. Henry Louis Gates will be giving the dedication speech. BBQ and other delights await.
The House is of special historic interest in many ways. This move to a historic house and a notable home says a lot about how the South is constructed in our minds and in our experiences. Having Dr. Gates are the speaker indicates a nuance of that construction a kind of recognition of rooms left unvisited even in small house.
