Historic Sotterley: A Tidewater Legacy

 

IN THE SPOTLIGHT


Hallowed Ground: Sites of African American MemoriesSotterley honors the 2016 theme of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History,
"Hallowed Ground:
 Sites of African American Memories"
 
 

Historic Sotterley Plantation, a National Park Service Network to Freedom site, is hallowed ground because hundreds of people of African descent passed through these grounds during the tragic years of slavery and beyond. Some died, some lived, some escaped, all resisted their bondage and many survived. All passed on their life, their history and culture that is embedded in the very core of what our country is today. We at Sotterley honor February as Black History Month and continue to learn, preserve and honor its history and people throughout the year.  Learn more
