Slavery Museum Files Reorganization Plan
RICHMOND, Va. – The U.S. National Slavery Museum former Gov. L. Douglas Wilder hoped to open in Fredericksburg, Va., filed a reorganization plan in federal bankruptcy court on Feb. 17. The plan proposes a way for the museum to resume operations and pay off its debts of over $7 million.
