Diane Mutti Burke, author of On Slavery’s Border: Missouri’s Small-Slaveholding Households, examines the lives of African-Americans who were enslaved in Mid-Missouri. The small-scale system of slavery practiced in the region created living and working conditions that compromised the strength of enslaved families and communities and increased the possibilities for physical and psychological abuse, yet, at the same time, enhanced opportunities to resist.

Opening in 2019, the Center for Missouri Studies is a state-of-the-art facility that secures the ability of SHSMO to carry out its work for a second century. This virtual tour includes the art gallery, research center, conservation lab, classrooms, and bookstore.
