Mr. Joseph McGill, Founder and Executive Director of the Slave Dwelling Project, invites you for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. During this intimate evening, guests will sleep in a historic log cabin at The President James K. Polk State Historic Site, birthplace of the 11th U.S. President. Here, participants will have the opportunity to share in a meaningful discussion on the life experiences of enslaved peoples, contemporary social issues and the U.S. presidency before spending their evening in a crudely constructed historic log cabin.

Following the sleepover, you will have the opportunity to reflect, write and record your story using a variety of media, including digital and video recorders and journals.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. SPACES ARE EXTREMELY LIMITED.
