Abstract

abstract:

In 2015 the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission opened McLeod Plantation Historic Site. What remains of the former 1,693-acre Sea Island cotton plantation is 37 acres, 14 historic structures, and an African American cemetery. Interpretation of the former plantation is focused on the African American struggle to achieve freedom, justice, and equality from 1851 through 1990. The cultural history interpretation coordinator and co-author of the National Association for Interpretation award winning exhibits at the site explores the development, implementation, and adjustments made to interpretation since the opening and comments on the current state of Black museums in America.
