Rumble The descendants of slaves and slave owners meet for weekend-long reunions at a South Carolina plantation where they bond over their painful shared past.

The ancestors of slaves who toiled away at Middleton Place, in Charleston, SC, gather with relatives of the plantation’s slave-owning family every five years for a two-day stay.

Guests have dinners and lunches together, tour the house and gardens and listen to lectures about their ancestors’ lives on the plantation.
