The Beyond the Fields Documentary is an award-winning film which takes the interpretation of the slave experience and brings it to a new medium, with new insights from present-day historians, researchers, preservationists, and historic site interpreters, along with descendants of the Middleton family and of African Americans with roots at Middleton Place. It offers a fresh perspective on what life was like here when slaves built and sustained Middleton Place, Charleston, and the economy of the entire region.
Visitors to Middleton Place can view the film, which will be shown in the Pavilion, every Tuesday and Thursday @ 11:30 am & 1:30 pm throughout the month of February. (Note: no showing on Feb. 28). The film screening is included in General Admission to Middleton Place and is part of the Black History Month programming.
