ALL EVENTS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Historic Sotterley Plantation is both humbled and elated to celebrate the official opening of its Slave Cabin Exhibit! The new exhibit is being dedicated to the memory of Agnes Kane Callum, a Sotterley Trustee Emeritus, who passed away in 2015. Ms. Callum spent her life tirelessly researching her own family's history that intertwined with Sotterley, and composed many other written works which shed light on the life and labor of Maryland's people.

Such a momentous occasion necessitates four straight days of educational programs and community outreach.

Thursday, April 20, 7 pm
Commemorative Speaker Series: Dr. Adam Rothman, Professor of History at Georgetown University will speak on, "Faith, Family, and Freedom in the Maryland Jesuit Slave Community".

Friday, April 21, 10:30 am
Opening of Slave Cabin Exhibit: This exhibit will be dedicated to the memory of Agnes Kane Callum, her story, and how she served as a trustee to fight for Sotterley to be saved when its doors almost closed. Agnes understood that Sotterley must tell its stories due to its legacy of slavery, and the lives it can touch to promote understanding.

Saturday, April 22, 2 pm - 3 pm
Presentation & Discussion: Practicing Perspective -
"How To Speak About Slavery with Any Age".

Sunday, April 23, 2 pm - 3 pm

Then and Now. First is the Callum Family during a family reunion. When they visited, they were unable to go inside the Slave Cabin because of the tremendous disrepair. Today, we were honored to host Edna Martina Kane Aiden (Agnes' sister) and her grandson, Marcus, as they browsed the exhibits that described their family's history inside the Slave Cabin.
