Early Bird Registration Open for Slave Dwelling Project Conference

Early bird registration is now open for the 5th Annual Slave Dwelling Project Conference, to be held at Middle Tennessee State University from October 24-27, 2018. Go to this link to learn more, and be sure to register by August 15 for the early bird discount. The theme of the 2018 conference is “Slavery, Resistance, and Community,” which will provide an excellent forum for discussing the history of slavery, as well as the ongoing challenges faced by our multi-ethnic democracy in the twenty-first century. Conference highlights will include a keynote by Colson Whitehead, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Underground Railroad, and a performance by the Fisk Jubilee Singers. A preliminary program is available. One of the sessions will discuss South Carolina’s McLeod Plantation, shown here. The conference is sponsored by the Slave Dwelling Project, the MTSU Center for Historic Preservation, and the Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area.
