Joseph McGill: The Slave Dwelling Project

As far west as Texas, as far south as Georgia and as far north as Massachusetts, dwellings that were once lived in by the enslaved still dot the American landscape. In an effort to bring much needed attention to these often neglected residence, Joseph McGill, founder of the Slave Dwelling Project, has spent nights in over 70 of them. McGill is often joined in these sleepovers by descendants of the enslaved and those who enslaved. Coastal Carolina University hosts McGill as he chronicles his overnight stays in these dwellings and describes the future of the project, October 15 in Edwards Recital Hall.
