I just wanted to let you know that I will be doing a live video chat with three descendants of Mount Vernon slaves. It will be tomorrow, Weds Jan 8th, at 12noon EST/9am PST. It will also be uploaded later on Youtube so all can watch.
If you would like to join the conversation and watch it live, please send an email to AskaSlave@gmail.com and the link will be emailed to you 10 mins before start tomorrow. All you need is a Google or Youtube account. Or check out the Ask a Slave Google+ page, and the link will be up there as well.
I hope you are enjoying Season Two of Ask A Slave! I am so sorry that your gifts have not gotten to you yet. We are having some trouble with the printing company that we used for some of the gift levels. I hope to have them to you by next week! *fingers-crossed*
As I reflect on what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving, I must say that I am so very grateful for the generosity of resources, support, and goodwill that you have given me. I hope your holiday is richly blessed.

"...She's made her experiences fielding actual stupid questions from actual stupid tourists into a video series that not only invites laughter, it encourages people to think a little harder about how we lionize the Founding Fathers as paragons of morality." - Jezebel
"You'll shake your head at the ignorance, laugh at the absurdity and think about the ways in which the more things change, the more they stay the same." -Madame Noire
Thank you for all your hard work on this project, you and your team are incredibly funny, clever, and entertaining. Not only do my friends and I enjoy your show but it has encouraged us to do our own research on the era. Thank you again for such amazing entertainment.
