MEMORIAL TO BE BUILT AT SITE OF COUNTRY’S LARGEST SLAVE PRISON

200 years ago, Richmond, Virginia, was home to the largest slave penitentiary in the United States: Lumpkin’s Jail. The slave holding facility, also known at the time as “the Devil’s half acre,” held the title for more than twenty years and was a hub for the country’s slave trade. Two centuries on, and after much deliberation, Richmond has decided to move forward with plans memorialize the site where many slaves were once held and lost their lives.
