Southern plantations are an American icon, symbolizing our nation’s complicated relationship with the past. Both glorified for their grandeur and denounced for their central role in an early American economy based on slavery, Virginia’s plantations still fascinate us. Local authors Jai Williams and Charlene Giannetti explore the hidden stories of these historic icons in their new book, Plantations of Virginia. Visiting 40 plantations throughout the state, the authors interviewed mansion guides to dig deeper and uncover little known accounts of life in these palatial homes. Williams lends her talents as a professional photographer to provide stunning pictures to accompany the stories. She will also share her views as an African American photographer working in the south and photographing the grand plantations of slave holders.
