Mini-Post – Whitney Plantation Experience

Our experience at the Whitney Plantation was truly unique. We appreciate the experience, and we encourage all Americans to visit plantations when provided the opportunity. Plantations give us a glimpse of the harsh reality of slavery and force us to think about how things were, how things are, and how things could possibly be. To Louisiana natives, visiting plantations is as much of a personal experience as it is a learning one because many plantations offer a connection to our direct ancestral lineage. It allows us to take a moment to remember, honor, and show respect to our unsung heroes and potential relatives. As with any plantation experience, I was flooded with mixed emotions. Our tour guide, Cheryl, was wonderful. She’s native to the area known as the German Coast (as are we), and having the opportunity to tell the story of slavery was equally as personal and important to her as it was to us. Thank you, Cheryl, and we look forward to hearing the stories that you were unable to share during the tour.
