Monticello Plantation, Sentence of the Day

“At the time of my visit, of the eighty-nine tour guides, only four of them were Black, and three of the four were a part of the incoming class that had yet to officially begin their jobs.” (How the Word Is Passed, p. 39)

The above is not the Sentence of the Day. This one is:

  • “Many African-American interpreters who have worked here . . . it’s been challenging, because people say some pretty insensitive and unbelievable things.”

Sentence of the Day, Fourth Sunday of 2022

  • The splitting of families was not peripheral to the practice of slavery; it was central. — Chapter 2 (“Monticello Plantation”), p. 15
