Sleeping with the Ancestors: How I Followed the Footprints of Slavery (online)

June 11 @ 6:00 pm

Historic preservationist and Civil War reenactor Joseph McGill Jr. has logged more than 200 nights sleeping in slave dwellings at historic sites in twenty-five states and the District of Columbia. In this enlightening personal account, he tells the story of his groundbreaking Slave Dwelling project. His quest to share the experience of the enslaved took him throughout the South, but also the North and the West, where people are often surprised to learn that such structures exist. With journalist Herb Frazier, McGill reveals the fascinating history behind these sites and sheds light on larger issues of race in America.
