The History and Documentation of Slave Housing in Virginia
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a slave house, cabin, quarter, or dwelling? Or how to go about researching the lives of the enslaved people who lived in these houses? Or when so many of these houses are gone or heavily altered, what can still be learned? Join us as we explore the various types of slave housing, stories of the past enslaved occupants and current plans for interpretation, efforts to identify and record the houses that still exist, what we can tell from buildings still standing verse archaeological sites, and the challenges in this work.  

Panelists:
Elvatrice Belsches | Public Historian, Presenter, Archival Researcher and Author of Black America Series: Richmond, Virginia (Arcadia Publishing)

Jobie Hill | Historic Architect, Founder of Saving Slave Houses and former Preservation Architect & Mulberry Row Project Manager at Monticello

Douglas Sanford | Archaeologist, Co-founder of the Virginia Slave Housing Project and Professor Emeritus of Historic Preservation at University of Mary Washington
