Charleston is a melting pot of cultures, languages and nationalities. This diversity is responsible for creating the unique culture and customs that characterize the Charleston area to this day. While many of Charleston's earliest citizens came for economic opportunity or political and religious freedom, slaves were brought from Africa to provide the necessary labor for agriculture and construction. The sheer number of Africans brought through the port of Charleston makes it the -Ellis Island- of todays African-American population. However, not all blacks remained slaves. Charleston had a sizable population of blacks who bought their freedom and earned their living as artisans, craftsmen and business owners.
The contributions of Africans, both free and slave, were an integral part of Charlestons economic and cultural life. African-American influences span the visual arts, architecture, music and cooking. Some of the best known contributions to life in the Charleston area include the work of craftsmen on many of the city's finest structures, a tradition currently exemplified by the beautiful ironwork of master blacksmith Philip Simmons. No visit to Charleston would be complete without a better understanding and appreciation of African influences on the area. Tours concentrating on Charleston's African-American heritage and its historically significant sites are readily available from the Charleston Visitor Center. The annual MOJA Festival, a celebration of African and Caribbean culture, is held each October.
