CreativeMornings Charlottesville: Preserve

Friday, May 10, 2019 - 8:30am

May Theme: Preserve

CreativeMornings Charlottesville is focusing on the preservation of stories related to the legacy of slavery at Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia plantation. Through over 100 interviews with the descendants of people enslaved at Monticello, the project Getting Word led by Public Historian Niya Bates, tells the stories of people whose whole lives and achievements were all but erased over the last 200 years. The preservation of these oral histories leads us to a more truthful understanding of our collective history, calls us to honor the strength and resilience of the enslaved and their descendants, and asks us how we will move together toward an equitable future.
