Old Slave Mart Museum

Charleston, SC

The Old Slave Mart Museum illustrates the role Charleston, South Carolina played in the domestic slave trade. Telling the story of how the lives of the slave trader, slave buyer and the enslaved were intertwined in Charleston’s only remaining slave showroom was paramount in creating a lasting emotional experience. By incorporating immersing audio/visual elements, slave narratives, primary source documents and artifacts, Rowland’s design brings this historic and sacred place to life.
