South Carolina

February 18 - June 1, 2013

On display Feb 18 - June 1, 2013, at the University of South Carolina at the McKissick Museum, 816 Bull St., Columbia, SC.

Dawn of Freedom: The Freedmen's Town of Mitchelville explores the transition from slavery to freedom for slaves who escaped to Hilton Head Island during the Civil War. Residents voted, owned homes, and took the first steps toward full citizenship. Dawn of Freedom draws on the unique culture of Sea Islands and the Gullah traditions to tell this story from the dawn of freedom to the present.
