Very educational! One white family owned 900 slaves, this is how white people gained economic power, through the blood, sweat and life of slaves. If you ever question reparation, this is your answer. Even after Share Corp, whites continue to squeezed the free slaves by...More

My son and I both found the tour to be incredible. Bill has a keen knack for story-telling, leading visitors through the history and experiences of the enslaved people who lived and toiled on the Stagville Plantation. The tour was rich with detail but never...More

My brother and I were blessed to be on tour with such a knowledgeable tour guide, who had taught at the graduate level and had such a passion for the site. The tour focuses on the enslaved people, although we got information about the family...More

I think every American should make a trip to Stagville in their lifetime. I teach high school history, and came to this site as part of a month-long Freedom Tour of the South. As the members of a nation shaped by slavery, it is essential...More
