Traces: Slavery At Ashland

How historic sites address their history of slavery is important. They need to be unsparing, and in the past, they haven’t been. Ashland, Henry Clay’s Estate in Lexington, recently created an entire tour devoted to telling the stories of the 60 African Americans who Clay enslaved there. In this virtual talk, Curator Eric Brooks will present information from the tour, as well as about Ashland’s evolving interpretation of slavery over the years.
