Here is an organization that offers lodging and contact with the descendants of slaves to learn about the history of slavery from their perspective. A story which is often glossed over(or should I say whitewashed) in our educational system.

Alleged Sockpuppet!

I heard a great story on NPR.  An African American father and son went on a plantation tour.  They were the only black people on the tour.  The son got horribly depressed.  His dad called him over to the brick wall of the house and said "spit on it".  He did and his dad did.  I'm not sure if it was a place where their ancestors had been in bondage.  But the act of spitting on the house made him feel better.

It was an hour long show on plantation tours and what they don't talk about.

The complicated business of plantation tours

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

When we went to see Jefferson's Monticello, we took a tour of the house...


...and then we took the 'Slavery/plantation tour':


The two tours told completely different stories. Even the tour guides had completely different demeanors. I'm glad we took the first tour, but the second one was by far the one that sticks in my mind more.

most people do not understand the real story about slavery and I make no bones that I believe in it. BUT the people brought to america were already slaves in africa someplace made so by warring tribes. america was not the first to buy people in bondage but there was a great need for workers on southern plantations and apparently there were few others who would perform that kind of work....however that being said american indians also made slaves of opposing tribes after a battle including taking the women for wives and killing the children and older people....the truth will out if you have a mind to research it?

Disagreement, statements of context, or additional information...is hardly an indicator of fear.

Whereas intentionally implying fear on someone else's part is sometimes a back door tool for de-legitimizing their arguments without presenting empirical reasons why they're wrong.

It was never present... nor obvious.

I think the leader of our great nation has unleashed the bonds of ignorance from the bottom dwellers.
