New Content of Special Note:

Sea Change

Patrick McMillan takes viewers from the sands of Hunting Island State Park to other communities along coastal South Carolina and Georgia, exploring diverse perspectives on the impact of sea level rise on the Eastern Seaboard. Resources include:

Between the Waters - Documentary & Website

Showcasing the culture and history of Hobcaw Barony, a 16,000 acre historic site on the coast of South Carolina. Located between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, Hobcaw is a crossroads representing every era of human history, providing a lens through which many threads of the nation’s story may be examined.

The Between the Waters documentary can serve as a valuable resource for social studies teachers whose curriculum includes Native American and African American history, as well as the history of environmental conservation. It can also serve as an introduction to the Between the Waters website, which provides in-depth exploration of these and many other themes with a wealth of choices for increasing student engagement.

Visitors to the Between the Waters website take a self-directed virtual tour of Hobcaw Barony, moving down the roads and rice canals, entering slave dwellings and grand houses, watching videos, examining photographs, and listening to historians and the first-person stories of former residents and relatives.

Resources include:

Palmetto Places

A series of 30-minute programs that explores and celebrates the architectural and cultural heritage of South Carolina's small towns and countryside. Travel with host Joanna Angle as she explores historic houses, public buildings, and country stores. Joanna also talks with local artists, painters, sculptors, weavers, writers, storytellers, and musicians. 

...More locations are being added all the time!
