"George Floyd was murdered on May 25, 2020. On June 4, 2020, the Firnew Farm Artists' Circle began meeting here at Montpelier, and continued meeting through the summer and most of the fall. I drove down from Rappahannock watching the seasons unfold and listening to podcasts about systemic racism and what it is to be black. Arriving at Montpelier I am always struck by the dissonance of the beauty and the history of the place. The fact that enslaved people were being treated as less than human at the same time that their master was writing our Constitution is something I have been struggling to make sense of for all these many months."
