Slavery Times Exhibit

Visitors exit the ships hold, to a slave auction in Charleston, South Carolina. An almost life size image of a man, woman, and child waiting to be sold stands in front of us.

Visitors learn how enslaved Africans found themselves in the Aiken area and how they lived and worked here. They also will hear people read accounts of slavery as it was remembered by the last generation of people born into slavery and recorded by Works Progress Administration staff in the 1920s and 1930s.
