Description:

The Reality of Reconstruction: A Lecture with Tom Massey at Bellamy Mansion in downtown Wilmington, NC, focuses on the demise of slavery in the South 150 years ago. Mr. Massey, lecturer in history at Cape Fear Community College, seeks to explain the transition from slavery to freedom as a result of the Civil War. Undeniably, African Americans freed from the yoke of slavery deserved citizenship. But every step of the way was met with adversity and setback. This lecture explores changing relationships between former slaves and their former owners, including those whose lives were entwined at the Bellamy Mansion. Please note: There is a $5 suggested donation to benefit the museum''s 2018 educational programming.
