Family Reunion at a Plantation | The Slave Dwelling Project

“My son, Malcolm, was at a loss. He couldn't understand why we would journey to a plantation to have our reunion or why, on Earth, I would consider spending the night there. I sought to explain the relevance of doing so for me. He shook his head; not being able to comprehend. Cousin Essie McCullough, the eldest member of our family at 96 years old, was also perplexed by our decision to bring our family celebration to the site. The experiences of the weekend proved transformative for them both.”……….Mina Wilson

Many thanks to everyone who came out to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens on Saturday for their annual, public history day. Visitors were able to learn about the variety of ways they can go out and explore history -- including traveling the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor. There was also a moving afternoon of historic interpretation, "Living History Through the Eyes of the Enslaved" organized by Mr. Joe McGill of The Slave Dwelling Project and presented by Mr. Jerome Bias, Ms. Germaine Jenkins, Mr. Gilbert Walker, Mr. Rodney Prioleau, Ms. Christine Mitchell, Ms. Sara Daise, Ms. Carolyn Evans, and Mr. Dontavius Williams. They shared Gullah history, taught about skills such as blacksmithing and brick-making and educated about the economics of slavery.

Thanks to our Program Coordinator Ms. Bria Graham for representing the Corridor this weekend and Commissioner Herb Frazier (SC) who was instrumental in organizing this event.

Junteenth and One Enslaving Chief Justice | The Slave Dwelling Project

“Slavery in New London was different with often just one enslaved person living with a family in their house. During many months of the year, the garret was not a pleasant spot for sleeping. It was storage for foodstuff, as well as a sleeping quarters. It is the place that Mr. McGill wanted to sleep in to experience a night like Adam Jackson.”…………Aileen Novick

I get the most push back from people when I talk about slavery in northern states. In those states, African American history is more than just the Underground

Slave cabins at Magnolia Plantation, Charleston
I'm so glad to see the cabins in a better state than when I worked there. I was the head gardener of the historic gardens for 3 years and can remember the state they were in. Also the one by the snack shop. I was embarrassed when Hastie insisted putting the black mannequin in the cabin so (his words) " people can see how the lived." The man never got it from a historical view,just a money view. So happy to see a good end result.
