Two one-week workshops for 50 community college faculty members on African American life in rural and urban communities in the Georgia Lowcountry.

The landmarks workshop for community college faculty has been designed to address the broad themes of race and slavery in American history covered in a U.S. History survey course by focusing on site-specific experiences of communities in and around Savannah from the late eighteenth through the early twentieth centuries. Through course readings, scholarly lectures, landmark site visits, community presentations, guided tours, and research in primary source documents from the Georgia Historical Society collection we will examine the centrality of place in the African-American experience in Georgia?s Lowcountry and the larger Atlantic world. Workshop content is intended to help facilitate classroom discussion of general topics such as American slavery, early-American and nineteenth century economies, religion, art, and music as well as more site-specific subjects such as the impact of geography, environment, time, and place on the development of community values and cultures.
