Historic Preservation and 21st century Interpretations of Slavery

January 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Daniel Island Historical Society

Daniel Island doesn’t have physical reminders of the Antebellum South. There are no plantation mansions complete with slave quarters. But slavery and its legacy do play a role in the Daniel Island of yesterday and today.

Historians Anne Blessing and Joseph McGill will present “Historic Preservation and 21st century Interpretations of Slavery” . Daniel Island has a unique opportunity, as a newer community, to initiate the local interpretation of slavery rather than reshape it. Blessing and McGill will discuss things like… What responsibilities do newer communities, and present-day citizens everywhere, have to the past? How ought communities like Daniel Island honor the past even as they grow? What are the challenges, the typical stumbling blocks, etc?
