Sponsored by Hopkins Alumni
Join fellow alumni and friends for a virtual exploration of the Lowcountry Exhibit at The Charleston Museum in South Carolina! In the Lowcountry History Hall, we'll see materials related to the Native Americans who first inhabited the South Carolina Lowcountry as well as the colonists and enslaved African Americans who transformed the region into an agricultural empire.
Exhibit Highlights: The Walled City. Some of the earliest known artifacts related to the settlement of Charleston. Rare slave badges, which allowed African American slaves to be hired out as laborers. "Dave" jars and other Edgefield pottery, produced by African American slaves. Tools used in rice cultivation and other plantation artifacts.
