Slave Dwelling Project Comes to Dorchester County, Maryland


The Slave Dwelling Project Comes to Dorchester
October 13 - 14, 2017

The public is invited to attend this series of inspirational and entertaining programs that will bring public awareness to lesser known historic structures associated with the history of enslaved people on the
Eastern Shore. Joseph McGill of SlaveDwellingProject.org and the Inalienable Rights Troupe of living history interpreters will sleep in two of these slave dwellings to bring attention to the need to preserve, interpret, and sustain these structures. Volunteers from ComingToTheTable.org will help vistors foster dialog on slavery and race relations.

The weekend’s events will be filled with living history performances portraying the music, foods, skills and
contributions of those little known individuals who helped build our nation, as well as other historic demonstrations. A Bus Tour will be available, reservations to be made online.

Events to be held at the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor’s Center, Dorchester County
Courthouse in Cambridge and Handsell Historic Site in Vienna.
