The CHIF team completely agrees with Tom Mayes at The National Trust for Historic Preservation that "old places are important for people to define who they are through memory, continuity, and identity." Learning about the past will lead us into the future. #historicalpreservation   #placematters

Compared in significance to that of Auschwitz, the Whitney Plantation, the first museum of its kind in the United States, is dedicated to telling the story of slavery.
