Liberty’s Forgotten People: Free People of Color in the Antebellum Lowcountry

May 17 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Guest speaker: David W. Dangerfield, a native of Berkeley County who currently serves as Assistant Professor of History at the University of South Carolina – Salkehatchie. In the years before the Civil War, the South Carolina Lowcountry was home to a remarkable group of people of color who were free despite the slavery all around them. This lecture will reveal the free people of color who are often forgotten or misunderstood, but who built communities, raised families, and made a way for themselves despite their limited legal status in the parishes surrounding Charleston.

NOTE:  This event will take place in the main worship section of the Church of the Holy Cross.
