Kelly Houston Jones: “Absentee Plantations in the Mississippi Valley”

November 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Throughout the Mississippi Valley, including Arkansas, the actual owners of many plantations did not live on-site. This talk examines these operations, asking questions about their management and similarity to absentee-owned plantations in the Caribbean. Perhaps most important, what was life like for enslaved people on places with no white family in the “big house”?
