    Excellent podcast. I hope to visit the plantation to pay my respects to the memory of the enslaved slaves.

    I visited the Whitney in October of 2016. Even though it was October, it was 90 degrees and very, very humid. The idea of cutting cane in that weather, or boiling sugar in that weather, was eye-opening. Maybe I missed it, but I wish someone had mentioned the statues of former child slaves at the plantation, representing the adults who were emancipated as children and gave their testimony to the Federal Writer’s Project. More on those remarkable statues can be found here: http://whitneyplantation.com/the-children-of-the-whitney.html
