Congratulations on becoming a docent!
The best way to share the story of your history is to be there participating!
Have you/they considered putting togeher an extra brochure/packet on the lives of slaves there......you could feature your GGGgrandmother as a specific example, to focus the general info about how many slaves and what they did! Where did they live, where were they buried? Did they actually build the place? I have only taken 5 or 6 "plantation house" tours in Mississippi, and only at 1 could they answer questions about the slaves in knowledgeable detail.
This might be your chance to make share the "whole" story is told.
How many slaves did they have?
