For Afronomenal’s birthday, I took them to Historic Stagville; an area that has remnants of one of the largest plantations in North Carolina. They had talked about wanting to go, so I decided to surprise them. These images are tools used for understanding the real history of plantations. The horror our ancestors had to live through; think of that while you look at these images. In many different accounts this plantation is depicted as the “good” plantation. There is no such thing as a good master; remember that.
