The historic grounds at Historic Arkansas Museum were home to many people. Through living history presentations, your students will hear the stories of three people enslaved on these grounds. Each presentation will be 10 minutes and at the end of the presentation the actor will break character to answer student questions.

*For groups over 60, the program will be two hours. The first hour, half of the group will visit the historic grounds while the other group will see a video in the museum theater and visit the museum galleries. The two groups will switch activities for the second hour.
