COMMUNITY PARTNERS

Leading a small army of slaves, Nat Turner was a man born with a mission: to set the captives free. When words failed, Nat Turner ignited an uprising that left over fifty whites dead. One hundred eighty years ago, in the predawn hours of August 22, 1831, Nat Turner stormed into history with a Bible in one hand, brandishing a sword in the other.  His rebellion shined a national spotlight on slavery, the state of Virginia and divided a nation’s trust. Turner himself became a lightning rod for abolitionists like Harriet Beecher Stowe and a terror and secret shame for slave owners.
