The South Carolina Historical Society Museum has an exciting new exhibit coming soon…..

We are pleased to announce our newest exhibit, Africa to America: The Plantation Culture of Early South Carolina. This exhibit focuses on the marketing and sale of enslaved Africans and the many contributions they made to the culture of colonial South Carolina. Featuring original documents held by the South Carolina Historical Society along with images and artifacts loaned by other museums and individuals, the gallery traces enslaved Africans from the rice-growing regions of their homeland and highlights the skills and knowledge that they brought with them. Dr. Dan Littlefield, Professor Emeritus of the University of South Carolina, and former Director of the Institute for African American Research at that institution, is the guest curator for the exhibit.

This exhibit opens to the public on Tuesday, April 26th. The SCHS Museum is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10:00am-4:00pm. Learn more about the museum and how to purchase tickets by clicking here
