This thesis focuses on the interpretation of the African American experience on historic plantations in Charleston County South Carolina. The focus is on understanding the definition and components of site interpretation, as well as the role of Historic Site Managers and Site Interpreters, and their standards. Boone Hall Plantation, Drayton Hall, the McLeod Plantation, and the Hampton Plantation are all case studies for this thesis. Each is owned by different organizations and has different African American resources available to them on site. The stated intentions of the Historic Site Managers and Site Interpreters is compared here with the actual experience of visiting each site and, if they prove necessary, suggested changes are discussed. In essence, this is an advocacy effort for a more thorough interpretation of the slave experience on historic Charleston plantations.
