In the final installment of this two part episode, we continue our visit with Vennie Deas Moore at Hampton Plantation, a former rice plantation turned state park located along the South Santee River. After leaving the African American cemetery located on the property, Ms. Moore shared her interpretive work in the Colonial-era plantation house and the surrounding rice fields. Afterwards, we journeyed to nearby Germantown, where freedmen and their descendants have lived for generations.
