This Penn School film highlights its role educating African Americans in domestic skills and professional trades since it was established in 1862 on St. Helena Island in South Carolina. When the film was made in 1942, the school was attended by many South Carolina “Gullah” who descended from former slaves, and some are seen and heard telling stories in the film. Now called Penn Center, the institution is a National Historic Landmark. This work was preserved by the Library of Congress and is part of their National Screening Room. close
