To Be Sold (2015)

On Saturday, March 21, 2015, the Library of Virginia and the Historic New Orleans Collection (HNOC) co-hosted a one-day, two-city symposium, To Be Sold: The American Slave Trade from Virginia to New Orleans. Morning sessions were held at the Library of Virginia in Richmond, and the afternoon sessions were at the HNOC. Funding for the symposium was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Kevin Heraldo, of the University of Richmond, edited the videos. The videos are in the Library of Virginia's Virginia Memory section.
