Green Hill Plantation, Slave House
Having a physical space to experience and interact with is one of the best ways to help people grapple with some of the complexities and harsh conditions that slavery imposed. Unfortunately, many people won’t have the opportunity to experience this in person. 66% of the sites I have surveyed are privately owned. Even though the owners have been very gracious and accommodating to open their properties up to me for my research, it is unrealistic to expect them to operate like a public site. Thanks to technology fieldwork can be translated into virtual reality experiences so anyone and everyone can have the opportunity to interact with and learn from slave houses.
