Our Hometown: ’40 Acres and a Mule’ Screening to take place 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.

The screening takes place Friday, September 20 at 7pm.

Seating is limited.

For ticket information, call: 912-660-6957.
