2018PS Poetry at McLeod: Marilyn Nelson

McLeod Plantation Historic Site
325 Country Club Dr.
Charleston, SC 29412

We make admission to McLeod free for the first 50 people who come to MPHS "For Poetry," and thereafter poetry is free with admission to the site—free for four with a Gold Pass, but $15 for ages 13+, $12 for seniors 60+, and $6 for children under 12.

This innovative program brings outstanding African American poets to a Gullah heritage site to illuminate the experience and legacy of enslavement. Marilyn Nelson, daughter of a Tuskegee Airman and finalist for several National Book Awards, has composed extensively on the lives of African Americans, including Emmett Till, George Washington Carver, and a slave named Fortune. This event is funded by the SC Humanities Council, The Poetry Society of SC, James Island Pride, and South Arts in partnership with the SC Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
