Sidedoor: ep. 6 | slavery, freedom, & grandma’s house

grandma's house

What if you found out that your grandmother's house was going on display at a museum? The. Whole. House. That's what happened to the Meggett sisters, who grew up visiting, eating, and playing at their grandma’s tiny cabin in South Carolina, unaware that it was originally built to house enslaved people. This time on Sidedoor, we explore the house's unique journey from slave cabin to family home to its latest incarnation as a centerpiece at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
