There’s an interesting new project to help reclaim and retell stories anchored in Charleston’s slave past. And two of the participants, Herb Frazier of Magnolia Plantation and Joseph McGill of the Slave Dwelling Project have been featured in past DIHS monthly program presentations.
FROM THE POST & COURIER: “Charleston’s main tourism marketing organization is rolling out an all-new online platform about African American history and culture in the region, and, according to its creators, the existing site is just a start.
“In my opinion, it will never be finished,” said Perrin Lawson, deputy director at Explore Charleston.
The new website, “Voices: Stories of Change,” is a complete overhaul of its predecessor, Lawson said, which had not been updated in about a decade.”
