Visit Denmark Vesey’s home, catfish Row, the Old Slave Mart and the Market; learn about the sweetgrass basket makers, the Aiken-Rhett House slave quarters, black slave owners and blacksmith Philip Simmons. Brown’s distinctive narration, combined with the detailed maps and vibrant descriptions in a native Gullah, make this a unique and enjoyable way to experience the Holy City
