About this title

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1970 as part of South Carolina's tricentennial celebration, this is a collection of photographer Leigh Richmond Miner's large-format black-and-white images of life on a Carolina low-country barrier island. This pictorial chronicle of life among the post-Civil War freed black community in and around the Penn School on St. Helena Island was prepared under the direction of historian Edith M. Dabbs. Using the latest in high-quality digital duotone reproduction, this reprint edition exceeds the original in revealing the skill and sophistication of Miner's photographic abilities as well as providing a unique look at a truly exceptional aspect of American life.

About the Author:

Edith M. Dabbs was a historian and native of South Carolina who had a lifetime interest in the island of St. Helena's. Leigh Richmond Miner was a Connecticut-born photographer and teacher at Hampton Institute.

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
