Carolina Gold: How Rice Culture Shaped the Lowcountry

 

While many people know that the wealth of early Carolina was built upon slave labor and rice growing plantations, few people understand how that grain, which came to be known as "Carolina Gold" was grown, harvested, milled and processed.

Botanist and historian, Dr. Richard Porcher is professor emeritus at the Citadel and adjunct professor of biological sciences at Clemson University. Dr. Porcher will discuss the fascinating story of how the culture of rice growing and processing shaped the cultural and natural history or our region.
