Join Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage for “History Unbound,” a special edition of the History Uncorked series, that will explore the various fates of some of those who were enslaved at The Hermitage.
For the enslaved workers at The Hermitage, the decisions that shaped their post-emancipation lives reflect the many questions facing them. Questions such as: What names to choose? Whether to remain at The Hermitage or to strike out independently? What examples to follow in taking charge of their own experiences? The answers reflect decades of suppressed talents, interests, feelings and relationships. Using the examples of Hannah Jackson, Alfred Jackson and Washington Townsend, Erin Adams, Director of Education at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, will explore the various options facing enslaved workers as they stepped into freedom at last.
The program begins promptly at 6:30 p.m., with doors opening 30 minutes prior. Tickets are $8 for Hermitage members and $12 for non-members.
Raise a glass to the past! The History Uncorked series offers an evening of wine, wisdom and words. Offered in partnership with Natchez Hills Winery, each program focuses on a particular topic, followed by a lively discussion in a casual setting.
A portion of all sales will support the Andrew Jackson Foundation’s mission to preserve the home place of Andrew Jackson, create learning opportunities and inspire informed citizenship.
