Black and White: Plantation Scenes of South Carolina

AUGUST 2, 2016 – JANUARY 31, 2017

South Carolina’s Lowcountry plantations, producing both rice and sea island cotton, were once a major source of revenue for the region’s wealthy elite. The use of enslaved labor to grow and harvest these crops created a unique existence between slave and owner that required a close but vastly different lifestyle. This exhibit will feature images of plantation houses and slave cabins along with the fields and rivers that once intertwined the lives of black and white inhabitants.

LOCATION:  The Charleston Museum, 360 Meeting St., Charleston.
