UPCOMING: Lowcountry Slavery: Daily Life and Revolutionary Change
Describes various ways enslaved Africans and African Americans in the Carolina Lowcountry carved out distinctive cultural identities, resistance strategies, social structures, and material culture within the context of chattel slavery, based on retentions from diverse West and Central African societies as well as multicultural American adaptations. This section also outlines the experiences and actions of enslaved people in the Lowcountry during major upheavals such as the Revolutionary War (1775-1783) and the U.S. Civil War and Emancipation (1861-1865).
