August 2, 2016 - January 31, 2017

The photographs in Black and White explores plantation scenes of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Once a major revenue source for the region’s wealthy elite, both rice and Sea Island cotton were grown and harvested with the use of enslaved labor. This unique existence between slave and owner required a close but vastly different lifestyle. The exhibit features images captured by Laura Bragg, Frank Bond, George Johnson, and M.B. Paine, of the plantation houses, slave cabins, and the rice fields that once intertwined the lives of the black and white inhabitants of the South Carolina Lowcountry.
