Join us for a presentation by Julian Price, UNC-Greensboro student and Blandwood Museum docent, to learn more about how this National Historic Landmark is incorporating the political and social narratives around enslavement, abolition and industry into their interpretive plans for visitors. Julian will provide a brief history of Blandwood and share his research into uncovering the larger story of political, religious and geographical features which curiously situate Antebellum Greensboro amid the broader south and how this information is being added to the public facing interpretive plan of the museum. This presentation will appeal to every history and preservation enthusiast, but especially those with close ties to the management or interpretation of historic sites and museums.
Registration is FREE, but required.
