Inalienable Rights: Living History through the Eyes of the Enslaved

Saturday, September 14, 2019
Join Mr. Joseph McGill, founder and executive director of the Slave Dwelling Project, and first-person interpreters for a one-of-a-kind living history event at the President James K. Polk State Historic Site in Pineville, N.C.

Families are invited to encounter folks in every corner of the living history village, where interpreters will tell stories and present lectures related to the lives of enslaved African Americans. In addition, interpreters will demonstrate various skills, including cooking, quilting and much more.

This project is made possible by funding from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
