See a powerful exhibit in the basement of the building, which was once part of a larger complex used by the slave trading firm Franklin and Armfield. Through first-person accounts of enslaved men and women and details from the business, encounter the harsh reality of the domestic slave trade and Alexandria's role.
|Nov 11, 2018||Sun||1:00 PM||Facetime with History|
This monthly series allows guests to spend time with people from the past in an informal setting, much like meeting at the tavern to catch up with friends. While the individual varies, through conversation and stories, guests will deepen their understanding of the past and how it connects to today.
