Slave Badge Found On College Of Charleston Campus

The recent discovery of an 1853 slave badge on the College of Charleston campus has offered a profound opportunity to recognize the contributions of the enslaved people who were an integral part of the development of the institution.

CofC students and faculty discovered the badge labeled “servant” during an excavation earlier this year at a site near Rivers Green where a solar pavilion is under construction.
