An Inspirational Journey

Much thanks to Avis Robinson for participating in the Speaker Series 2011 with her heartfelt and inspiring presentation of “Please Remember Me - Slavery to Emancipation” last Sunday. She and her husband Eugene shared their personal collection of artifacts, as she recounted their family's powerful journey from the dark oppression of slavery to the light of freedom. They were a people who relied on their spirituality, persevered through obstacles, and ultimately succeeded with dignity, strong values, hard work, and education.

Thank you!

Because of the generous grant and continued support from The Boeing Company, Sotterley Plantation is able to offer this important community outreach, fulfilling its mission of serving as an educational resource and cultural venue while it seeks to preserve, interpret and research the plantation’s diverse cultures and environments through its history.
