About This Show
Magnolia Plantation's slave cabins have a unique history, in that they have been utilized from the time of antebellum slavery through emancipation and into the late 20th century by African-Americans. Magnolia Plantation, in Charleston, has partnered with The Living History Group to restore these dwellings in a way that interpret African-American history from slavery to freedom and beyond. Craig Hadley, Executive Director of The Living History Group, and Rick Owens, of Carolina Preservation Associates talk with Dr. Edgar about the unique challenges they faced creating From Slavery to Freedom: The Magnolia Slave Cabin Project.
