  Plantation Histories and the University: Rethinking the Past During Virginia Tech's 150th  
(Seminar/Conference)

Virginia Tech's Blacksburg campus occupies land that was once worked by dozens of enslaved people. The oldest building on campus, Solitude, is a former plantation home. Smithfield, another plantation owned by members of the same slaveholding family, sits adjacent to campus and now operates as a museum.

As Virginia Tech commemorates its 150th anniversary, join our distinguished panel of speakers to discuss the intertwined histories of Solitude, Smithfield, and VT--and how those histories are being reimagined during the sesquicentennial.

The panel features Victoria Ferguson (Director/Docent for the Solitude-Fraction Site); Kerri Moseley-Hobbs (Executive Director of the More Than A Fraction Foundation and Fraction family descendant); Ryan Spencer (Executive Director, William Preston's Smithfield); and Daniel B. Thorp (Associate Professor of History at VT and author of "In the True Blue's Wake: Slavery and Freedom among the Families of Smithfield Plantation").

Sponsored by the Virginia Tech History Department's Diversity and Inclusion Committee, with support from the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences.
