Community Corner: Historic Screening of “40 Acres and a Mule” Docudrama at Green-Meldrim House


We’ve all heard the story of the “40 acres and a mule” promise to former slaves.
But did you know the historic announcement was actually made right here in Savannah?
Next month, a docudrama chronicling that meeting will be screened in the place where it all happened–the Green-Meldrim House.
It’s also a fundraiser for a local organization– Chatham County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates or CASA.
Lorrie Rumpel is a CASA Volunteer and co-creator of the docudrama.
She joins us with more.
