Girls Raised In The South . . . . . . A Tea Party and Celebration of Lowcountry Women Who Changed History

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

The Carolina Room at Dataw Island Club

1:30 PM: Reception with Live Music by Horizon and Cash Bar

2:00 – 4:00 PM: Tea Party featuring scrumptious traditional fare

Join us for a performance by acclaimed historic re-enactor Kim Poovey, based on her novel Truer Words. Dressed in period clothing, Kim will recreate a defining era in our Country’s history through the story of two Civil War-era women, one black and one white, who befriend each other as girls on a Lowcountry plantation, and together work for the causes of freedom and equality.

We’ll also celebrate four strong women whose courage and spirit changed the course of history in the Lowcountry and beyond:

  • Harriet Keyserling—Mayor Billy Keyserling will recount his mother’s achievements and contributions to Beaufort and South Carolina.
  • Harriet Tubman—Andrea Allen, Museum Board Member, will tell you how Ms. Tubman altered the history of the Lowcountry and America.
  • Abbie Holmes Christensen—Anne Christensen Pollitzer will talk about her great grandmother’s lasting impact on Beaufort and the area.
  • Ercell Brown Holmes—Ingrid Owens of Penn Center will introduce Mrs. Holmes, a 1947 graduate of the Penn School on St. Helena Island.

Learn more about these fascinating women on the Museum’s website.
