Lift Every Voice: Savannah's African American History Museum's Free Day - Telfair

Sunday, August 20, 2017

The museum’s plan to reinterpret this space—recognized as one of the best preserved urban slave quarters in the South—will bring new awareness to this important piece of history. Visitor experience in the space will be enhanced through installations that draw upon the award-winning scholarship from the Slavery and Freedom in Savannah project and feature recorded excerpts of slave narratives that will give a representative voice to the people who inhabited the Owens-Thomas House Slave Quarters.
