Belle Meade Plantation says
The Hardings and the Jacksons were not the only people who called Belle Meade Plantation home during the nineteenth century, the site was also home to many servants and enslaved African-Americans. We invite you and your home-schooler to tour the grounds and historic buildings while discovering the different jobs, living conditions, food, clothing, and culture of those held in slavery at Belle Meade Plantation. Using information cards, students read the name and occupation of an enslaved worker, thus bringing life to the workers on the farm. Students participate in the Journey to Freedom game while following a chosen path of the Underground Railroad. Learn the important role that music, folklore and art played in daily life of the enslaved workers.
*This program complements the reading of "Follow the Drinking Gourd" or "Sound the Jubilee".
