"Shared History"…was one of the most intense events that I have experienced and witnessed…..  It more than moved people; it shook them. The paradoxes, complications and histories of race, of black and white in America, of exposed weaknesses and concealed strengths made many of us think and think again.

While independently researching their families’ histories, three descendants of slaves and slaveowners meet and uncover the mythologies about their old connection.  Shared History reveals the intimate encounters and conversations of families who come together in South Carolina at Woodlands Plantation to explore the realities of their 260-year-old relationship.
