Summary
"This documentary captures in comparitive [sic] detail the five historic primitive campmeetings in the South Carolina Lowcountry that have roots in 18th century Methodism. From a time when black slaves were gathered with white owners under brush arbors to hear the horseback evangelist, Bishop Francis Asbury preach came the establishment of, first, three Anglo-American camp grounds, like, Cattle Creek, Cypress and Indian Field; then,later Afro-American camp meetings were built on land donated by white landowners and were modeled on the "white-folks" camp meetings. Shady Grove came first and later St. Paul's campmeetings. These campmeetings - which have never missed an annual week of meeting since their origins - return thousands from across the country back to their roots to worship, fellowship, eat Southern home cooking over woodfire stoves and keep alive the memory of their ancestral families."--Publisher's website
