Soaking up the South with fried green tomatoes, grits and home fries! This was at @earlygirleatery in Asheville and it was delicious!

Above the entry hallway spans a remarkably unique arched flying bridge, which connects to the grand staircase and features inlaid brass. #midnightinthegarden #savannah #savannaharchitecture #southernarchitecture #americansouth #traditionalarchitecture #classicalarchitecture #classicism #englishregencyarchitecture #englisharchitecture #flyingbridge

My favorite feature of the Owens-Thomas House interior is its stunning grand staircase, which is built of carved wood and flanked by two corinthian columns. #midnightinthegarden #savannah #savannaharchitecture #southernarchitecture #americansouth #traditionalarchitecture #classicalarchitecture #classicism #englishregencyarchitecture #englisharchitecture #corinthiancolumns

Marquis de Lafayette was certainly one of the most famous guests at Owens-Thomas House. During his 1825 visit, at the request of the townspeople, the Revolutionary War general reportedly save a speech from the house's south balcony (which is supported by brilliant green acanthus leaves!). #midnightinthegarden #savannah #savannaharchitecture #southernarchitecture #americansouth #traditionalarchitecture #classicalarchitecture #classicism #englishregencyarchitecture #englisharchitecture #balcony #acanthus

One of my favorite films is the "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," which is set in Savannah, GA and is the inspiration for my posts this week. Based on a true story, the film's gripping plot is second only to its outstanding architecture. I have always been drawn to Savannah for that reason and was thrilled to finally visit over the last several days while attending a successful ICAA Board Retreat! In a city known for its classical design brilliance, one of my favorite buildings is the Owens-Thomas House, designed by the English architect William Jay of Bath in the early 19th century. The Owens-Thomas House (known originally as The Richardson House after its first owner) is North America's preeminent example of English Regency architecture. #midnightinthegarden #savannah #savannaharchitecture #southernarchitecture #americansouth #traditionalarchitecture #classicalarchitecture #classicism #englishregencyarchitecture #englisharchitecture

Robert Smalls1870-1880 Pt.1/2 In 1862, the second bloody year of the #AmericanCivilWar, a 22-year-old slave named #RobertSmalls accomplished an unthinkable feat of cunning, deception, and bravery: he stole a ship. But it wasn’t just any ship that this crafty young man decided to nab. No, he knew what he needed and had meticulously planned to get it. His vessel of choice was fully stocked with hundreds of rounds of ammunition, #Howitzer guns and other weapons, and—most importantly—17 pieces of Confederate property, all of which were warm-blooded human beings enslaved by the prevailing #zeitgeist of the #AmericanSouth. Robert Smalls was born in #Beaufort, #SouthCarolina, in 1839. His mother Lydia served in the house of John McKee, her owner and alleged but unconfirmed baby daddy. Compared to slaves in the field, Lydia and Robert faced less horrific conditions, and this worried Lydia. She wanted her son to see and understand the savagery and inhumanity of enslavement, so Lydia, with presumably the heaviest of hearts, sent Robert into the fields to experience true #slavery, whipping posts and all. This education forever changed Robert, igniting within him a spirit of defiance and rebellion that would later lead to a covert, nail-biting escape to freedom. At the young age of 12, Robert moved (or, more accurately, was shipped) to #Charleston, a harbor town on South Carolina’s coast, and his love of the sea drew him toward the docks. His status as a white man’s #chattel notwithstanding, Robert proved himself as a worthy #stevedore and #seafarer, slowly gaining the trust of those holding him captive. His plan for freedom began to take shape in 1861, when Robert landed an assignment to steer the #Planter, an armed #Confederatesteamship, and in May of the following year, he undertook a feat that was both audacious and thrilling. #BlackHistoryEveryday

#NatTurnersRebellion (also known as the #SouthamptonInsurrection) was a slave rebellion that took place in #SouthamptonCounty, #Virginia, the night of August 21/22, 1831. Led by #NatTurner , about 70 rebel slaves killed about 65 people, the highest number of fatalities caused by any slave #uprising in the #AmericanSouth. After two days, militiamen and armed civilians quelled the revolt. Turner was captured on October 30, tried and convicted, and hung on November 11. About 30 other #blackpeople were lynched and expelled from Virginia. In response to the revolt, the #GeneralAssembly passed harsher slave laws and censored abolitionists. #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackgreatness #historylesson #merica #birthofanation #racism #racist #reverseracism #racecard #systematicracism #institutionalizedracism #fuckracism #blackpowermatters #blacklivesmatter #alllivesmatter #bishwhere #blackisbeautiful #blackandproud #blackfriday #blackout

Hi, this is Gillian Laub (@gigilaub) on my last day taking over the @gupmagazine Instagram. Thank you all for spending the last week with me. I wanted to share this image of Quanti and Kayla dancing. They were voted prom prince and princess in 2011. This image is very symbolic to me and that is why I put it on the cover of my book @southernrites Just two years prior, they never would have been able to even dance together. What seems like a typical photo of teenagers dancing, is actually an image that felt triumphant for me. This is what parents were so strongly and fiercely trying to prevent, but the students won! Five years later Quanti says, “What most people didn’t know when I went to prom, was that I went alone, because Kayla and I were secretly dating and she couldn’t come as my date because her parents wouldn’t be cool with her dating a black guy. So I went alone in order to be able to hang with her that night. I still see her from now and again and it’s like nothing changed. We’ll always be close no matter what.” Kayla’s recent reflections…"“When I was a freshmen I was so excited to be asked to my first prom, I didn’t realize it was strange that it was just for the white kids because that’s just the way it was always done here. The next year when it was integrated, the prom was so much more fun because we were with all of our friends. Now my eyes have been opened up and I can see the racism that existed. I am happy to be part of the generation who is making changes and doesn’t see color like our parents and grandparents did. Quanti was my close friend since we were in kindergarden and I was so happy our friends voted for us. I still see him sometimes when he comes back home from the military.” #gupmagazine #americansouth #gillianlaub #southernrites

Hi, this is Gillian Laub (@gigilaub) on my last day taking over the @gupmagazine Instagram. I wanted to end with a photo of someone I spent a lot of time getting to know over the past years who has really inspired me. I met Keyke, this beautiful animated girl who was so excited to be the first black girl to attend the “white folks” prom in 2008. She was invited by her best friend, Dylan, until his mother didn’t feel comfortable with this, so Keyke was then disinvited and devastated. Keyke and her family have suffered and fought racial oppression in their community. After the proms were finally integrated things started to change for the better and her father whose life was once threatened for running to be sheriff, finally was able to run with a lot of support in 2012. Then there were some setbacks. These are Keyke’s most recent thoughts she shared with me. “I thought I’d move away for good, but I came back. Because this is home and it was too hard to be far from my family. Black Live Matter and all of the recordings of police brutality and killing of unarmed black men has been eye opening for the country. The rest of the world if finally seeing what we’ve been dealing with forever.” #gupmagazine #americansouth #blacklivesmatter #gillianlaub #southernrites

Hi, this is Gillian Laub (@gigilaub) taking over the @gupmagazineInstagram for two more days. I am posting images from different projects, along with people and things that inspire me. I spent several years photographing and filming in Montgomery County, Georgia. Originally I went there to document the segregated homecoming and prom rituals. The project evolved into a feature film @southernrites, book and traveling exhibition. This is Lacey who was the black prom queen in 2008. I recently talked to Lacey to see how she is doing. This is what she shared…“I was always inspired by Nelson Mandela and his belief that education was everything. I knew it was important to leave after graduation and be exposed to the larger world. I went to Spellman in Atlanta for undergrad and then Law school at Emory. I still go back to Montgomery County every other month. It’s home where my whole family is. I want to be a good role model for my nieces and nephews. I want to help keep their eyes open. I didn’t have that when I was growing up. For example, I was just so excited to finally get to go to prom, fighting to integrate it was an upward battle that I didn’t want to ruin my senior year. A lot of people have to fight for survival and through poverty so fighting racism here is not at the top of their list. When you are in the day to day battle of poverty and making ends meet, that trumps the racial issues, even though at the end of the day, they are connected.” #gupmagazine #gillianlaub #segregatedproms #americansouth
