Summary:
Ethan J. Kytle and Blain Roberts explore what they call the “highly bifurcated” tourism they found in Charleston, South Carolina, heralded as “America’s Most Historic City.” As Kytle and Roberts argue, the historical narratives offered by the city’s tour guides often diverge over the issue of race and slavery.

Abstract:

Ethan J. Kytle and Blain Roberts explore what they call the “highly bifurcated” tourism they found in Charleston, South Carolina, heralded as “America’s Most Historic City.” As Kytle and Roberts argue, the historical narratives offered by the city’s tour guides often diverge over the issue of race and slavery. This means that the same tourist sites within Charleston are interpreted by white tour guides as places of Old South romance and chivalry, while black tour guides tell of the heartbreak of slavery at those same sites. These divergent narratives of the city’s past complicate the tourist experience in Charleston as well as its urban identity.
