The Slaves Have Names: Ancestors of my Home tells the stories of the people who were enslaved on the plantation where Cumbo-Floyd was raised in Central Virginia.  It’s the story of her journey to get to know these extraordinary people and to understand her debt to them as well as our nation’s continued struggles around race and the legacy of slavery.

Andi Cumbo-Floyd is a writer, historian, and genealogist who focuses on the history and legacy of slavery in the United States.  She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where she and her husband run a small farm with goats, chickens, and big, fluffy dogs.
