A $10 million gift from a Washington philanthropist is poised to transform Monticello by helping visitors see the full plantation, including its history with slavery. David Rubenstein, the co-CEO of The Carlyle Group private equity firm, is announcing one of the largest gifts ever for Monticello. It will fund the reconstruction of Mulberry Row, the community where slaves and workers lived on the Virginia plantation. Monticello officials plan to rebuild at least two log buildings where slaves worked and lived. (AP Photo/Steve Helber, File)
