Planning for an interpretive exhibit, outdoor signs, off-site interpretation, and education programs concerning an African American community on Ossabaw Island, its continuities and changes from enslavement to emancipation and into the 20th century.

Develop a long-term outdoor interpretive exhibit on Ossabaw Island, GA. The site will relate the historical experience of an African American community over two centuries, and provide a platform to discuss the community's multiple connections to the broader Atlantic world. Interpretive planning will address development of on-site (island) interpretation, off-site (mainland) interpretation and standards-based educational materials. Two themes will be explored: Continuity and change over time of Ossabaw's African American community from enslavement through emancipation into the beginning of the twentieth century. Continuity and change in community relocation from a barrier island to the mainland community. Funds will be used to assemble a team of uniquely qualified consultants and key advisors to enhance the humanities themes and define interpretive techniques. Activities include conducting archival and genealogical research, oral history and front-end audience research.
