BENEFITING: Middleton Place Foundation
Middleton Place Foundation needs help funding its newest education and artistic endeavor.
"Beyond the Fields", a documentary set to release in 2017, will feature information highlighted at the National Historic Landmark site in Charleston, SC. Expanding on a book of the same name, the Middleton Place Foundation seeks to continue the conversation about enslaved communities on rice growing plantations, through the lens of Middleton Place itself.
There are few records left of these communities, and with a detailed set of primary materials, Middleton Place Foundation is poised to offer a unique and important insight into enslaved plantation life - both during work time, as well as within the community 'at leisure'.
Middleton Place Foundation has the historical resources to seize a unique opportunity to contribute to the conversation surrounding the stories of the enslaved, as well as to drive that conversation forward into the future - and we intend to do just that.
