Connect with community members, scholars, and genealogists as we gather near the spot where archaeologists have discovered slave quarters once stood. Be inspired by a thought-provoking conversation around a bonfire to discuss race, history, and healing. When the fire is extinguished, participants are invited to camp in the fields where the ancestors once slept.
