Tuesday Talk— “An Amazing Aptness for Learning Trades:” The Role of Enslaved Craftsmen in Charleston Cabinetmaking Shops

Tuesday, June 11, 2019, 7:00 PM

When historic furniture is put on display, most of the attention goes to the quality of the work and the master craftsman from whose shop the piece came. However, little is said about those involved in creating such a piece.  This talk will examine the role of enslaved craftsmen in Charleston cabinetmaking shops during the late eighteenth century and how wealthy Charlestonians’ desire for fashionable goods fueled the demand for this labor force. Speaker: William Strollo, Curator of Exhibitions
