Wessyngton Lecture & Exhibit Tour

The Tennessee State Museum will present a lecture by author John Baker Jr. about his book, “The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation.” Baker served as an advisor to the museum for the exhibition, Slaves & Slaveholders of Wessyngton Plantation. The event will take place Saturday, March 29 at 2 p.m.

Baker will talk about his research on the Wessyngton Plantation and his ancestors. He will also address how discovering his heritage has impacted the lives of not only his family, but of African Americans interested in learning more about their own cultural heritage. Following his lecture, Baker will answer questions and sign his books.

A tour of the exhibition will be conducted by the exhibit curator Rob DeHart. There is no charge for the lecture or tour.
