  • I am the Forever: A Case Study on South Carolina Slavery

    by Lisa Bratton, PhD

    This class will provide attendees with a basic understanding of the process of using plantation records to research a formerly enslaved family. Dr. Lisa Bratton will present on her work with the Bratton Family Papers, which span over a century, from Historic Brattonsville, the only working plantation in South Carolina. Dr. Bratton, a fifth generation descendant of Green and Malinda Bratton who were formerly enslaved at Historic Brattonsville, will present a case study of the documents and show what these detailed records can tell about the life and legacy of the formerly enslaved.

    At 10:00am to 11:00am, Friday 12th November
