When: Sun., July 13, 3-5 p.m. 2014

Crafting Lives: African American Artisans in New Bern, North Carolina, 1770-1900 From the colonial period onward, black artisans in southern cities played vital roles in their communities. Yet only a very few black craftspeople have gained popular and scholarly attention. Catherine W. Bishir remedies this oversight by offering an in-depth portrayal of urban African American artisans in the small but important port city of New Bern.
