I Come From Strong Women
At Redcliffe Plantation State Historic Site
Celebrate the strong women in your life with Redcliffe Plantation SHS. Whether you have been inspired by a mother, sister, aunt, friend, grandmother or ancestress we want to hear the story of these strong women and the impact they have had on your life. Share your stories with other participants and learn about the strong women who shaped the story of Redcliffe Plantation and its future. Participants are asked to register ahead of time and, if you want to share a story, make sure it is something that can be shared in 3-5 minutes. Bring a picture of the story’s subject if possible. Join us after the program for light refreshments and informal tours of the historic mansion and slave cabin. This program inspired by the women of Redcliffe Plantation and, in particular, the autobiography of Redcliffe Descendant Jane Eve Fair Wilheit titled “I Come From Strong Women.”
What to Bring
Your story, a picture of the woman/women who inspire you and a copy of the photograph on a thumb drive.
