MIddleton Place is a historic plantation site just outside of Charleston that has for years told the stories of Africans, African Americans, and Europeans who lived at the site throughout its history, both enslaved and free. Since the early 2000s, the site has begun to engage more with its Black descendent community through reunion events and genealogy services.
