The Slave Dwelling Project
We cannot "sweeten" the history of slavery and Black history in early America! Buy a shirt to help preserve, interpret, maintain and sustain extant slave dwellings
About this campaign
OUR MISSION – The Slave Dwelling Project’s mission is to identify and assist property owners, government agencies and organizations to preserve extant slave dwellings.
OUR PURPOSE – The purpose of our work is to become a clearinghouse for the identification of resources to document and preserve these slave dwellings.
OUR TASK – It is essential that the Slave Dwelling Project serve as a conduit for the identification of preservation resources for owners of slave dwellings that have a desire to save these dwellings. We also seek to assist in the acquisition of slave dwellings within a community in order to mitigate the possibility of demolition.
OUR GOAL – Our goal is to bring historians, students, faculty, writers, legislators, organizations, corporations, artists and the general public together to educate, collaborate and organize resources to save these important collectibles of our American history.
We are a State of South Carolina incorporated nonprofit organization. We are a 501(c)3 organization for Tax Exemption from the Internal Revenue Service.

I loved ve this project; now more than ever the stories must be told!
I’m a HS history teacher & am developing an African American History course for students. The Slave Dwelling Project is so important b/c these buildings need to be preserved & studied to better understand the lives of African Americans during slavery
Because our complete history must be known, and the Slave Dwelling Project is a great way to bring its reality to lived experience, and therefore well learned. By "our" I mean every American. Sorry I can't also donate.
The Slave Dwelling Project is a much needed and outstanding remedy to our Nation's amnesia about the history of racism and enslavement.
