Mr. Joseph McGill, Founder and Executive Director of the Slave Dwelling Project, invites you to a once-in-a-lifetime experience. During this intimate evening, guests will sleep in a representative slave cabin at The President James K. Polk State Historic Site, birthplace of the 11th U.S. President. Here, participants will have the opportunity to share in a meaningful discussion on the life experiences of enslaved peoples, contemporary social issues and the U.S. presidency before spending their evening in a crudely constructed historic log cabin.

Following the overnight experience, you will have the opportunity to reflect, write and record your story using a variety of media, including video recorders and journals.

*Participants will be randomly chosen via lottery system. Selected participants will be notified no later than one week prior to the experience. Ticket purchase for Stories Untold: A Communal Dinner is required to be entered into the overnight experience selection pool. Purchase tickets by Friday, September 8, 2017 at ganttcenter.org for entry.
