As I like the challenges we must face with discussing history, I believe this should be a good panel. I’m only sorry I cannot attend.
This Friday, August 30 (sorry for the late notice, I didn’t know about it until right now) there will be a free event addressing Charleston’s relationship with freedom in the era of the Revolution and the Early Republic and slavery, a feature in South Carolina from founding until the end of legal slavery in 1865. One of the neat things about this is that my friend Joseph McGill will be staying in a slave quarter on the campus of hte College of Charleston as a part of his Slave Dwelling Project.
Even if you can’t go, it’s nice to see that things like this are happening more and more.
