Speak Out


Join the City of Richmond, the Richmond Slave Trail Commission, and the project design team as we begin the final part of the Concept phase for the Lumpkin’s Slave Jail Site/Devil’s Half Acre Project. Your voice is critical in completing the approach and design that will interpret the story of slavery and will meet the desired results for learning, remembering, healing, and understanding the significance of this site, its related sites, and its bearing on Richmond’s history, our US history.
