This program moves beyond the “Big Houses,” or stately historic homes, to explore the extant slave dwellings and interpret the experiences of the enslaved people who inhabited them. This workshop will include live historical interpretations and lectures to highlight the important contributions African Americans made to Arkansas’s history. The program will offer a broad understanding of the importance of slave dwellings in the interpretation of historic landscape and their role in heritage tourism. >>MORE INFO/REGISTER
