The Lives of Enslaved African Americans

Saturday, November 24, 2018

Hosted by the Lincoln County HIstorical Association and supported by grants from the North Carolina and Lincoln County Arts Councils, history comes to life through two interpretive presentations.

Nicole Moore presents third-person view of enslaved African Americans during the institution of slavery. She talks while preparing a meal over an open fire illustrating the skill and abilities needed for enslaved cooks in their day to day duties. Nicole engages with visitors to talk about family, work and leisure life while navigating a legal system that treated slaves as 3/5th of a person.

Dontavius Williams will present his first-person account of the life of an enslaved African American male through his Chronicles of Adam. This historical interpretation is comprised of various accounts, historical facts, and life lessons as visitors are thrust back in time to experience a first-hand conversation with Adam the blacksmith.

Parking is free.
