Conversations about Race in American History- "Beyond the Fields- Slavery at Middleton Place" Documentary screening and discussion
Start Date: 10/20/2017Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 10/20/2017End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:

Beyond the Fields – Slavery at Middleton Place is a documentary production of the Middleton Place Foundation that illuminates the lives led and the contributions made by some seven generations of people owned by the Middleton family in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Foundation has long been engaged in research and documentation that informed the interpretation of the history of the families – both black and white – that built and occupied Middleton Place from its founding in 1741. The documentary supplements work undertaken in the early 2000s that culminated in a book, also titled Beyond the Fields – Slavery at Middleton Place, that was published in 2008 and which itself was an offshoot of an exhibit of the same name mounted in Eliza’s House, a freedman’s house built in 1870 that is similar in style to antebellum slave cabins.

Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with people involved in the film.
