About the McLeod Project
The McLeod Project supports cultural and historical education opportunities that foster a more equitable society, by expressing a unified narrative of African American history, culture, heritage and art. The project is focusing on supporting these three areas:
- The Arts at McLeod - currently hosting a poetry series, by people of African descent interpreting their history, past, present and future.
- Engaging Descendant Communities- A “descendant community” includes people whose ancestors were enslaved and/or whose descendants lived at a particular site. Furthermore, a descendant community includes those whose ancestors lived throughout the region, welcoming all that may be connected.
- The Sankofa Memorial Garden- Preserving and memorializing a sacred burial ground for African American ancestors. One of the oldest African and African American cemeteries in Charleston.
