Alice Ravenel Huger Smith was an author, illustrator, printmaker, painter, teacher and historian. She was a key member of a group of local writers and artists that spearheaded a dramatic cultural renewal in the 1920’s and 1930’s, now recognized as the Charleston Renaissance. She is best known for her paintings that depict the natural beauty and historical significance of the Carolina Low Country. She was also part of a close and devoted family. This special exhibit, displayed at the Edmondston-Alston House Museum and the Middleton Place House Museum, brings together, for the first time, private family collections of her art and poetry, and provides a unique perspective on her life and work.

Middleton Place has been engaged for decades in telling the story not just of its white owners, but also of its African American population. For many years, images of slavery by white artists have shown legions of African Americans toiling in fields ̶ fields of tobacco, of sugar, of cotton, of rice. Looking beyond the fields, the Middleton Place Foundation’s programming documents and commemorates as far as possible the lives, the families and the contributions of some seven generations of people owned by the Middleton family.

The enslaved left few artifacts, personal papers or documents. In the Charleston area, even recorded oral histories are rare. Middleton family letters, plantation records, probate records and other public documents provide only brief glimpses into the lives of the enslaved at Middleton Place. The Foundation was confronted with the very real challenge in making visible those who had been invisible and extrapolating tangible evidence from the intangibles of their lives. This American story is told through discussions with historians, authors, researchers, preservationists historic site interpreters and descendants of the Middletons. View the preview of the documentary >>

Q&A to follow screening. Bluerays and DVDs of the documentary will be available at the event.
