C-SPAN Hires Camera Crew to Record Lecture on Febuary 3, 2011

We are absolutely thrilled to report that C-SPAN has hired a camera crew to record Florence Mitchell’s lecture on “The Enslaved People Who Lived on or Near Joel Lane’s Plantation” on Febuary 3, 2011 in the Visitors Center. The lecture is completely sold out, and no walk ins can be accomodated. The link to C-SPAN’s recording will appear here in the future.

Dr. Mitchell will be pleased to introduce members of families who may be descendants of enslaved people held by Joel Lane, namely David Lane and Briton Lane.

What visitors say

Thank you so much for letting our IB Human Geography class come tour the Joel Lane house. I really enjoyed learning about how high-class people lived back them. I was surprised to hear that they were always working and had no time to themselves. I was also shocked at the size of the beds. They were so small! You two really played good parts and made me feel like I was really back in those times.
