Slave Dwelling Project: Engaging Descendant Communities
- April 8, 2021
“It’s a pleasure that through this pandemic, historic sites are still building relationships with descendants of enslaved people.” – Joe McGill, Executive Director, The Slave Dwelling Project
Join us for a virtual discussion “Saying Their Names: Interpreting the Lives of the Enslaved People at Historic Sites” led by Joe McGill, founder of the Slave Dwelling Project in partnership with Farmington Historic Plantation, Historic Locust Grove, Oxmoor Farm Foundation, and Riverside: the Farnsley-Moremen Landing. Representatives or re-enactors from each historic site will join us as panelists. Special guest panelist will be Cheyney McKnight. McKnight started re-enacting in 2013 and has worked with more than 40 different historical sites since with her company “Not Your Momma’s History.”
This collaborative event between Louisville area historic homes will highlight the history of slavery at each historic site and how that history is relevant today in Louisville and beyond.
Get ready to Zoom with us! This virtual event will be held on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 6:30pm. Tickets will go on sale in March 2021.
Tickets are $12. All proceeds from this event will be used for future collaborative conversations within the historic home community in Louisville.
