The Holloways: Legacy of an American Family
Start Date: 1/21/2011Start Time: 3:00 AM
End Date: 1/21/2011End Time: 5:00 AM

Event Description
Harlan Greene, senior manuscript and reference archivist, will share his observations regarding the scrapbook and the article based on it in a forthcoming in the South Carolina Historical Magazine. Free people of color have always occupied an intriguing place in Southern and Charleston history. Locally, the Holloway family was one of the most pre-eminent free people of color clans. Although the brick and stone memorials they erected to their family and their class have been destroyed, a fragile paper scrapbook survives. Housed at the Avery Research Center and recently restored, the volume created in the early 20th century not only documents their social, legal, cultural and slave owning activities before the civil war, but dramatically shows how the family’s status declined in the Jim Crow era.
