Black and Brown Interpreters Meetup - McLeod Plantation

Black and Brown Interpreters Meetup - McLeod Plantation In-Person

Join us for the Transition to Freedom: 1859-1990 tour with Ista Clarke at McLeod Plantation Historic Site. This tour explores the journeys and legacies of the families who lived, loved, worked and died at McLeod. It connects the past by weaving the narratives of the Africans who resisted and demonstrated resilience at every opportunity. 

Before joining McLeod Plantation Historic Site, Ista lent his vision and talents to the Old Slave Mart Museum, where he managed that team for nearly a decade. Ista is a gifted historian and a teacher with a global perspective.

The Black and Brown Interpreters Network is a group of natural and cultural history interpreters and tour guides based in the Lowcountry and beyond who are dedicated to service, education and professional development in the field of heritage interpretation. 

In 2024 we will meet monthly to learn from our fellow Black and Brown Interpreters and tour guides; network, share opportunities for continuing education and scholarships, explore local history and more.

Our meetups are open to the community of Black and Brown people who identify as cultural/historical and natural history interpreters, tour guides and tour company owners; and/or Black and Brown people who have completed or plan to complete the National Association for Interpretation's Certified Interpretive Guide training course.

Remember "only we can tell our stories!"
