Moonstone Arts Center

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of Charlotte Forten’s death, Moonstone’s Hidden History Project presents a city wide festival on her life and work. Charlotte Forten was a teacher who participated in the Abolitionist Movement and the Port Royal Experiment, one of the first attempts at mass education.

We will explore five major themes with panels:

  • Charlotte Forten’s life and how it reflects the African American Women’s Experience
  • Charlotte Forten’s Journal and the tradition of African American Women Writers
  • Education and the African American Experience
  • Contemporary Education Policy Debate
  • Education and African American Organized Religion
