Uprising Charleston

In 1822 Denmark Vesey, former plantation slave who bought his own freedom, led one of the largest slave rebellions in history. It came close to toppling the whole city of Charleston, the main importer of slaves to North America, but instead led to the martyrdom of Vesey in the eyes of slaves and freedmen everywhere. In Uprising Charleston I will take you on a fascinating walking tour to the different key locations of the revolt, visiting the places that were integral to Vesey's growth and radicalization from a young slave boy to the intellectual and freedom fighter who would change the face of the abolition argument in the US more than anyone else. On this tour I promise to tell the full story with all the inspiring moments, rough edges, and dark history that made this town what it is. This is no middle school history class or carriage tour, this is Uprising Charleston.
