Enslaved men, women, and children not only built Monticello; they and their descendants also helped build the city of Charlottesville. This tour is based largely on the research of Monticello historian Lucia “Cinder” Stanton, and shares the stories of free and enslaved African Americans with ties to Monticello who left a lasting impact on Charlottesville history. With courage and perseverance, these individuals navigated the color line and triumphed in creating community despite the harsh realities of racism all around them.
