CSSC Director Bernard Powers writes,
            Friends of the Center for the Study of Slavery in Charleston, this will be an exciting week because The Slave Dwelling Project is convening its seventh national conference based on the theme:  “The Stono Rebellion and the Atlantic World”  The dates are September 8-10.

This year’s theme offers an in-depth look at the 1739 rebellion by enslaved Africans and African Americans along the Stono River in South Carolina and elsewhere in the LowCountry. Conference events will take place at the Stern Center on the campus of the College of Charleston. Conference-associated activities will occur on key sites related to the Stono Rebellion, with additional opportunities for self-guided activities in and around the Charleston area.
          The seventh National Slave Dwelling Project Conference is made possible through major funding by The 1772 Foundation.  Other sponsors are the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program and the Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World Program (CLAW) at the College of Charleston.
Complete information on the conference including registration can be found at:
            Hoping to see you there and help spread the word!
