Avery Research Center, Charleston, SC

This beautifully restored site of Avery School (c.1865) is now a research center to document and preserve the history and cultural heritage of Lowcountry African-Americans. Nearly 100 manuscripts and photograph collections are archived here, and the center sponsors lectures, films and exhibits related to African culture, civil rights and African-American history. A restored c. 19th-century classroom provides a look at African-American education from 1865 to 1954.

Denmark Vesey's House & Marker, Charleston, SC

Born into slavery in the Virgin Islands, Vesey purchased his freedom from his Charleston slave holder and settled into life as a carpenter on Bull Street . In 1821 Vesey home was the meeting place to organize what is considered the most extensive black insurrection in American history, involving thousands of free and enslaved blacks in the Charleston area. Set for July 12, 1822, word of the plot leaked out and Vesey and 36 others were hanged for their roles. The house is a National Historic Landmark.
