Instructor: Dee Phillips
In 1862 the Port Royal Experient, also known as the “Rehearsal for Reconstruction” began right here on Hilton Head Island. Join the discussion, as the class looks at the early efforts to integrate the new Freedmen into society, the Amendments that extended civil and political rights to newly freed African Americans, the gain of education, land, representation, and the brave trailblazers who led the way.
