Billionaire David Rubenstein, history lover and co-CEO of Carlyle Group, has pledged $10 million to recreate slave quarters at Monticello.

The Associated Press reports that the gift will be used to rebuild Mulberry Row, the community where slaves lived on Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia plantation.

Rubenstein has also supported other historical organizations, including the National Archives, the National Library for the Study of George Washington and the White House Historical Association.

His latest gift provides an excuse to link to the marvelous Maira Kalman.
