6:30pm
  An Enslaved Woman and Her Dressmaker Daughter  
(Academic)

As a Fellow at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, Charlottesville, Virginia, and an Appalachian textile historian, Kathleen Curtis Wilson has been documenting, photographing, and writing about regional craft traditions for more than 25 years. This lecture will focus on the life and needlework skills of Elizabeth Morris Bolden, daughter of an enslaved woman in Warm Springs, Virginia. Because 19th century textiles with a known African American provenance are extremely rare in Appalachia, the existence of Elizabeth's handwork and photographs of the dressmaker that remain in the family-of-origin is an extraordinary discovery.
Reception - 6:30pm
Presentation - 7:00pm
