Interpreting Slavery in a Historic City

The Telfair Museum presents a Panel: Interpreting Slavery in a Historic City on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at the Jepson Center, 207 W. York St. at 5:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

A major part of our responsibility as historic site stewards is a deep consideration of how we talk about the institution of slavery and the experiences of people who were enslaved. Join museum and history professionals for a conversation about interpreting slavery at historic sites, including why this work is important and how to ensure that we do it responsibly.

Moderator: Dr. Porchia Moore. Panel Participants: Jamal Toure, Board Member, George Liele Visions, Inc.; Jamie Credle, Director, Davenport House Museum/HSF; Shannon Browning-Mullis, Curator of History and Decorative Arts, Telfair Museums; and Shawn Halifax, Cultural History Interpretation Coordinator, Charleston County Parks.
