Journeys Lecture

Sometimes the most interesting journeys are not so far from home. With this in mind, our 2019 Journeys program will feature a unique opportunity to venture to a seldom-visited area of our neighboring island to the north. During the 19th century, Little St. Simons Island was part of the plantation system of the Pierce Butler family. A day trip to the island will be combined with a lecture about plantation slavery based on the groundbreaking research of an archaeologist whose distinguished career is rooted in Coastal Georgia.

On Wednesday, March 20, Theresa Singleton, Ph.D., will present a lecture on what archaeology reveals about the lives of enslaved peoples, both in the southern United States and the Caribbean. Dr. Singleton is Professor of Anthropology at Syracuse University, having received her doctorate from the University of Florida. She began her study of slavery in Coastal Georgia and wrote her dissertation on the Butler Island Plantation near Darien.
