The historic Heyward-Washington House will be open for tours from 6-7 p.m. Friday before McGill’s talk. The talk is free, but tickets are required for the tour.
After the presentation, McGill will spend the night in the house’s kitchen building, which served as a home to slaves.
McGill is staying in slave dwellings in an effort to preserve them. He will be staying in the kitchen house at the Heyward-Washington House this week.
The Hat Ladies of Charleston will hand out hats at Marion Square on Thursday at noon.
