Whitney Plantation is a 200 acre former sugar plantation turned historic site dedicated to telling the history of slavery in the United States from the perspective of the enslaved Africans, African-Americans, and Creoles of Color who built America’s wealth. However, it takes much more to share and interpret this history than just opening the door.

Join hosts Dr. Joy Banner, Director of Marketing and Communications, and Amber Mitchell, Director of Education, as they discuss the unique intersection of history, preservation, race, and storytelling that create a one-of-a-kind visitor experience.
