One of the most powerful moments today was actually touching the hand and thumb prints of my ancestors who laid the bricks to build the slave houses. We have to preserve and tell our history. #NC #stagville #slavery #history #durham (at stagville plantation)

I had an incredible day walking the grounds and houses of my ancestors at the Stagville Plantation, the largest slave plantation in NC stretching over 30k acres with 900 slaves. This is an actual slave house built by slaves in the 1860s that housed about 30 people. So inspired by our survival, history and culture. We were designers, architects, craftsmen and artisans. We have So many untold stories. Starting to Build my next piece! #slavery #NC #stagville #history #durham #ancestors (at Historic Stagville)
