Leonard's insight:

'Find the intersection' is fantastic advice by Eric Hinson. Lots of really great story tips and advice here but this one stands out as it is the one that so many organizations struggle with. 'Your story comes to life at the intersection of your brand’s identity and your audience’s needs.'  Great way to put it!

Louisiana plantation tours skittish on slavery history

Louisiana plantation tours skittish on slavery history | Genealogy | Scoop.it
Louisiana’s magnificent antebellum plantation homes draw thousands of visitors each year to the state. The tourists come to see the stately live oaks, the imposing columns, the luxurious 19th-century furnishings.But what the visitors most probably won’t encounter is any meaningful …
Leonard's insight:

The history of the slavery have been left out on many of the tours. When I take the plantation tours (and I have been on many) I always asked about a typical day of a slave on that plantation. Many of tour guides have a problem in answering. I feel the complete story should be told. The good, the bad and the ugly. This is part of the United States history no matter how bad it is.
