Buried History: Savannah’s African American Legacy
Buried History: Savannah’s African American Legacy is a free digital walking or driving tour developed by the Savannah Archaeological Alliance. At this launch event, Savannah Archaeological Alliance Executive Director, Laura Seifert, will discuss the development of the app and recent developments in African American historical research in Savannah. Seifert will discuss her archaeological research at the twentieth century Kiah House and the Davenport House’s new urban slavery exhibit, among others, to demonstrate how Savannah is changing how African American history is presented to the public. A community discussion will follow Seifert’s remarks, and the tour will be available digitally on October 10, 2019.
The development of Buried History: Savannah’s African American Legacy is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities as part of the Digital Tour Initiative, delivered in partnership with the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship.
