Stopped by @oakalleyplantation for a tour. Books about plantation life don't even begin to compare to seeing it up close. Unreal that a time like this existed and empowering to think I'm here because my ancestors decided to survive! at Oak Alley Plantation

These slave cabins on the Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, housed thousands of human beings over the course of the plantations' history. They grew rice, indigo, pecans, and tobacco, and later crafted many of the bricks that would be used to build both private homes and public buildings in nearby Charleston, South Carolina. Slave cabins were often prominently placed on a plantation's grounds as a display of the owner's wealth . . Ethically, I'm very torn about visiting plantations. I feel that they should be treated much more like the concentration camps in Europe (i.e. somber reminders of our past that serve to keep us moving forward) rather than beautiful parks sanitized of their sordid history where visitors can throw spectacular galas. Still, I think it's important to inhabit the spaces where tragedies occurred and pay respect to the often nameless people who lived and worked those grounds. . . American slavery was an atrocity of the cruelest kind, and yet without it, this country would likely not have survived beyond its infancy. We plucked the best and brightest and strongest people from Western Africa (doctors and engineers and builders and farmers) and demanded the use of their considerable skills to literally build this country from the ground up. Even today, we stand on the backs of all who came before us, and they deserve our respect and acknowledgement. . . . #slavery #enslavedafricans #plantation #southcarolina #slavecabins #blackhistory #blackhistoryisamericanhistory #travel #worldschooling #eachoneteachone #themoreyouknow #openminds #culture #education #history #all50states #goplaces #payrespects at Boone Hall Plantation

One of four slave cabins at Historic Stagville/Horton Grove. The cabins were built by enslaved persons in 1851. Each of the dwellings had 4 rooms, 17' x 17', with one family, or 5 to 10 individuals, in each room. This cabin is unique in that it is the only cabin with its original brick chimney. There are multiple bricks forever marked with the fingerprints and handprints of the enslaved peoples who made it. There is even a baby's footprint. • #slavecabins #slavedwellings #slavery #enslaved #historymatters #nchistory #americanhistory #plantation #ncplantation #historicbuildings #structure #nchistoricsites #stagville #hortongrove #historicstagville #durham #durhamnc #durm at Historic Stagville

The #evergreenplantation is known for being one of the most complete or intact plantation complexes in the South. This plantation has 22 cabins. 11 cabins on each side. Like I said in a previous post, the dichotomy of existence is evident here. The storm held off for most of our tour, but by this point it was a very wet day as you can see. I was pretty miserable and I had the comforts of an umbrella, dry clothes and shoes that could get wet. As I was leaving, I turned back to take this picture.. I can only imagine all the pain, suffering and discomforts the slaves that lived in these cabins over the years must have endured. #blacklivesmatter because they have never mattered *Please click the link in my bio to see more pics from my visit to @evergreenplantation _________ . . . . #ifthesetreescouldtalk #oldoaktrees #spanishmoss #slavery #slaves #slavecabins #sugarcaneplantation #plantationtour #edgardlouisiana #whileinnola #discovernola #visitnola #explorenola #itsyournola #neworleans #onlylouisiana #igersnola #beatouristnola #nola⚜️ #takingiteasyinthebigeasy #walkwithlocals #bythings #wow_america #justgoshoot #shotoniphone #nofilterneeded at Evergreen Plantation, Louisiana

On our way home we stopped to take a tour of the #evergreenplantation. I picked this one because it was used in the movie #Djangounchained (one of my favorite #tarantino movies) . It was surreal to walk through a part of history kept so well intact. There's not much I can share on my experience - it's something you'd have to see and feel for yourself. #history #louisiana #sugarcane #plantation #slavequarters #slavecabins at Evergreen Plantation, Louisiana

On the way home, we stopped to walk the grounds of the Cane River Creole National Historical Park. Here I am standing in one of the slave cabins. Look at how low this doorway is. I'm 5'2", and it's too short for me! #thatneverhappens #canerivernationalhistoricalpark #canerivercreolenationalhistoricalpark #slavecabins #slavecabin #louisianahistory #americanhistory

Original slave cabins still speckle the grounds surrounding the sugar cane fields. All homes on the property were built raised off the grounds due to the volatile nature of the Mississippi River #slavecabins #sugarcane #lauraplantation #Creole #mississippiriver #floodlands #louisiana

Redcliffe Plantation, South Carolina. Brady sitting on the vast lawn in front of part of the original slave cabins. This photo reminds me of Andrew Wyeth's painting Christina's World. #redcliffe #redcliffeplantation #southcarolina #slavecabins #slavery #cabins

Always interesting to see #slavecabins still standing. In these particular cabins there were still descendants of slaves living in them up until a few years ago. #nola #homesweethome2

Before the Civil War Whitney Plantation had 22 slave cabins. Today there are two of the original cabins (the others were torn down in the late 1970s) along with five other acquired cabins. The slave cabins were downriver along the road, starting at least a mile from from the Big House. #whitneyplantation #slaverymuseum #louisiana #slavecabins

The old woman held the young woman's hand tightly. Soothing her with comforting sounds. The young woman sobbed, clutching her free hand over her heart. The old woman leaned close to hear her words. "It hurts to remember, it hurts..." The old woman leaned back, stared off into the darkness and replied quietly "hold your past close, because it will kill you to forget." The cabin shrouded them in darkness, a container for their grief. Copyright © 2016 Lina Krakue. Sterling silver Adinkra-Sankofa "looking back to your past to move forward in your future".

The young woman lay in the darkness, trailing her fingers over the dirt floor of the cabin. Forcing her fingers to recreate the shapes and pictures from her past. She repeated this routine night after night, while listening to the strange sounds in this new darkness. She pushed down an overwhelming fear that she was slowly losing herself.

It's refreshing when plantation tours focus on those who actually worked the land instead of the people who hosted teas in the manor house. #slavecabins #lowcountrysc #chsforlife at McLeod Plantation
