Joseph McGill, founder of the Slave Dwelling Project, joins Historic Sotterley on November 1, 2018 as part of their Common Ground, Connected Heritage program made possible through a grant from Maryland Humanities. Joe has taken his message of historic preservation and heritage to over 16 states, drawing attention to those slave dwelling structures that would have been forgotten and ensuring that the places where enslaved families built and passed on their culture will be here for future generations.
