Middleton Place Foundation (Charleston, SC 29414-7200)
Jeff Neale (Project Director: May 2021 to present)
Enslavement at Middleton Place: Sharing a More Complete American Story

Planning and implementation of updates to two permanent exhibitions at Middleton Place: Eliza’s House and the Stableyards.

For decades, Middleton Place Foundation has been engaged in telling the stories of the Africans, African Americans, and Europeans who lived and worked at Middleton Place for over three centuries. A pioneer in the interpretation of slavery, the Foundation is constantly undertaking new initiatives that allow audiences to explore and examine themes to inspire a deeper understanding of ourselves and each other through our shared American history. This project will engage the descendant community in strengthening the ongoing slavery interpretation in two existing permanent exhibits – Eliza’s House and the Stableyards. The project, which was put on hold due to financial constraints as a result of the pandemic, will provide the public the opportunity to examine a more complete story of our complex American history with the hope to create empathy and build a more inclusive society.
