Slave quarters, built to house enslaved people on southern plantations, once existed in the thousands. Built cheaply of perishable materials, only a handful remain today. Kids will make reproductions of these quarters, as well as a home of the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass. A program of the library’s initiative 1619-2019 – 400 Years Later.
