About Us

Roanoke College partnered with other colleges and universities to found the Universities Studying Slavery (USS) consortium in 2014, and hosted a site visit during a USS conference in 2018.

Preservation of the Slave Quarters took place during the 2018-2019 academic year. Due to fire damage, the bottom floor is almost entirely new (about 10% original materials) and serves as meeting/lecture space. The top floor is inversely proportional with 90% original materials remaining.
