“In Manifest, Wendel White makes historical objects intimate and singular. These objects­—an oxidized spoon, an open diary, a slave bill of sale, and perhaps above all, a lock of Frederick Douglass’s hair—are all embodied, had once touched flesh, been manipulated by human hands, had lived in the world before they were packed up into the archive.” (Raiford, Memory Manifest)
