Across the Gulf South, former plantation homes are common tourist destinations and wedding venues.
Perhaps when visiting one of these locations you wondered about the history of the enslaved people that lived in there?
In 2014, the Whitney Plantation (http://whitneyplantation.com/) opened its doors to the public for the first time in its 262 year history as the only plantation museum in Louisiana with a focus on slavery.
On Saturday, November 18th Dr. Adderley will accompany Greenbaum residents on a tour of the Whitney Plantation…but there are limited number of seats so RSVP NOW if you are interested!
The event will be opened up as an all-hall Greenbaum event on November 10.
There is no cost to you to attend these programs! Refreshments during the Fireside Chat, transportation, tickets for the museum tour, and box lunch will be generously provided by the Office of Housing and Residence Life and the Center for Public Service.

On Wednesday, November 15th at 11:00am Dr. Laura Rosanne Adderley (Associate Professor of History at Tulane) will lead a discussion on the public history of slavery in the United States and what Louisiana’s history means for our experiences today. If you are interested in this trip, this discussion is highly recommended.
