South Carolina's African-American History and Culture

"Visit the region where Africans as slaves and indentured servants helped settle the first permanent colony in the Carolinas in 1670. Tour the region where the Gullah language and culture still flourish! Walk the streets of historic Charleston and trace African American life from the arrival of slaves in the 1670s to the modern Civil Rights Movement. All across South Carolina, you’ll find historic sites, plantations, churches, museums, art centers, monuments and festivals dedicated to honoring the art, music, spirit and accomplishments of South Carolina African Americans."
