Middleton Place Foundation's Fundraiser:

Beyond the Fields: Slavery at Middleton Place

THE STORY:

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'.

 

This project is partially grant-funded, and the Middleton Place Foundation, a 501-c3 education trust, is looking to supplement that funding, in order to create a stunningly modern and adept look at this very important, and too-long ignored topic. Along with rare footage of documents, artifacts, and landscape that only Middleton Place can provide, the filmmakers have embarked on a journey to interview the most knowledgeable scholars in the field on the issues and history surrounding slavery in the south. All we need now to make this dream a reality is your help! Please consider donating so that this documentary can be aired on South Carolina's regional network, South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV), as well as be produced in DVD form to be sold worldwide.

 

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.
