The color in freedom experience workshops are designed to use arts integration and a positive, nontraditional methodology to talk about slavery. They will feature age-specific information and use the arts as a tool to engage in conversations about slavery. The workshop’s facilitators are History scholars and experts on the topic of slavery and the Underground Railroad who will utilize their decades of expertise to educate and inform the audience. Workshops will address each audience at its level.
All workshops will be held at the College of Charleston Avery Research Center, 125 Bull Street, Charleston. The workshops will take place on May 3 and 4. For more information, call Sheila Harrell-Roye: (843) 953-7613 or visit the Avery Center’s website.
