In the first installment of this two part episode, we speak with cultural historian Vennie Deas Moore at Hampton Plantation, a former rice plantation turned state park located along the South Santee River, roughly nine miles north of McClellanville on U.S. Highway 17.  During our visit, we walked the grounds of Hampton where she shared her experiences as an interpreter and offered valuable insights about the daily lives of enslaved Africans and their descendants at Hampton, and after emancipation, in nearby Germantown, South Carolina. To learn more about Vennie Deas Moore’s career and upcoming projects see: http://deasmoo.wix.com/southern-writer
