Liberty Hill Next Generation (LHNG) was founded in 2021 when a group of old friends who were seeing each other constantly at funerals of friends from the community and decided to make a difference by changing the outcome. The LHNG Founders were tired of the toll that miseducation, gun violence, and adverse circumstances had taken on their old community. What started out as a community event to bring awareness and unity to yet another young African American losing his/her life to gun violence, sparked the desire for transformation.
In 1864, Paul and Harriet Trescot owned 112 acres of farmland, north of Charleston. These “free persons of color” sold the land to four former slaves: Ishmael Grant, Aaron Middleton, and Plenty & William Lecque.
Their goal was to establish a settlement for black men and their families with faith as the foundation. They donated one acre for the construction of St. Peter’s African Methodist Episcopal Church on the southeast corner of the land.
