During the Holly Springs Pilgrimage, guests will be allowed a rare look into another side of antebellum life through a surviving slave dwelling with historic interpretations by Joseph McGill of the Slave Dwelling Project, as featured in the 2016 February/March GARDEN & GUN. Culinary Historian, Michael W. Twitty will discuss the cooks of antebellum kitchens and the lives of enslaved people’s unique role in giving the South her mother cuisine. Twitty, selected for a 2016 TED Fellowship and author of the recently published The Cooking Gene, will conduct food demonstrations throughout the program. Additional historic interpreters will illustrate the roles of an antebellum brick maker and laundress.
