When: Fri., Feb. 17, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2017
Starting this Friday, Magnolia Plantation presents the first in a series of demonstrations by living historians, Living History: Through the eyes of the enslaved. The program includes storytelling, outdoor cooking, and blacksmithing and takes place at the restored cabins that once housed enslaved workers. Magnolia’s executive director Tom Johnson says that this year, instead of just featuring special events during black history month, the plantation will incorporate black history throughout the year. The program includes cooking from Jerome Bias and Nicole Moore, Gullah stories from Sara Daise and Christine Mitchell, and blacksmithing from Gilbert Walker.
