Former National Trust for Historic Preservation Field Officer Joe McGill will bring his dynamic program, The Slave Dwelling Project, to Stratford Hall. Mr. McGill started this program over a decade ago, with the goal of generating attention and support to help save extant slave cabins throughout the South. His work has now expanded to the entire country and the Caribbean. His programs are inclusive, dynamic, and engaging. His team provides first-person slave narratives, authentic cooking and a family-style meal, and storytelling.
