The Slave Dwelling Project is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to identifying slave dwellings and assisting property owners, government agencies, and organizations in preserving these structures. Joe brings attention to the need to preserve slave dwellings by spending the night in them and conducting educational programs all over the country. The Slave Dwelling Project has held events at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and Poplar Forest, the Aiken Rhett House in Charleston, SC, James K. Polk Historic site in Pineville, NC, Magnolia Plantation, Charleston, SC, and other sites all over the country, including in Delaware, Wisconsin, New York, Rhode Island, Kansas, and beyond.
