Curator’s comments

During numerous conversations with her great-aunt Cornelia Johnson, Robinson learned that her father's ancestors had lived as slaves on Sapelo Island, Georgia. After the war, the ex-slaves established their own communities on Sapelo. Hog Hammock is the only community that survives and almost its entire population of seventy is descended from slaves. The rest of the island is owned by the state of Georgia.
