Gilmore Cabin at Montpelier

Vignette

The history of the transition from slavery to freedom for African Americans is told at the Gilmore Cabin on the grounds of James Madison’s Montpelier in Virginia. Born a slave for President Madison in 1810, George Gilmore and his wife Polly raised five children on a small sharecroppers farm after emancipation. Built by George Gilmore and his sons, the cabin is one of only a few existing freedman’s homes left standing in the United States.
In this program, we also visit a reconstructed Jim Crow train station near the cabin, where segregated “white” and “colored” waiting rooms were once the law of Virginia. Our tour guide is Christian Cotz, Montpelier director of visitor engagement.

Book Discussion on She Would Not Be Moved

Public Affairs Event

Herbert Kohl talked about his book She Would Not Be Moved: How We Tell the Story of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott, published by New Press. In his book, he argued that the traditional way children have been taught the Rosa Parks story is misleading. The author explained that Rosa Parks' decision not to give up her seat on an Alabama bus was part of a well thought out demonstration, not strictly a personal decision. Herbert Kohl urged teachers to take a closer look at textbooks written for children in order to accurately portray her role and the roles of others in the Civil Rights Movement. Following his remarks, the author responded to questions and comments from members of the audience.
The event celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Montgomery bus boycott.
