As a UNESCO Slave Route Site of Remembrance, Historic Sotterley invites the public to this important day by honoring the memories of those that perished and survived the trans-Atlantic slave trade. We remember the abolition of the trade and celebrate the contributions of survivors whose strength built nations.
Join us for a FaceBook LIVE (or in person attendance – masks and social distancing required). Bell ringing, reading of names of the enslaved, and pouring of libations. A visit to the Middle Passage marker, and the Slave Exhibit.
Historic Sotterley is open on Sunday from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
Free for those who wish to join us for this event on site.
Social distancing of at least 6 ft. should always be practiced, and face coverings are required.
