Manigault is an African American landowner in Berkeley County, South Carolina. He bought his family home, along with 39 acres, from his cousin, and then purchased an additional 53 acres from his father. He has nine children who all worked on the land as they grew up under his guidance. The family had cows, chickens, and hogs, and they grew deer corn, soybeans, sugar cane, and sweet potatoes. In addition, the family had their own personal garden that contained—among other things— peanuts, which the children will attest to harvesting from 4 a.m. until long after dark on Saturdays. The Manigaults’ blood and sweat were in the land, and the land was in their hearts.
