  A Mess of Salad?: Provisions Grown in Slave Gardens at Monticello, 1805-1808  
(Academic)

From 2006-2012, Sorensen worked as African-American Research Historian for the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, Monticello, where she curated the Mulberry Row and Slavery at Jefferson's Monticello exhibits and gave interpretive presentations in the Monticello Hearth Kitchen. Her talk will explore knowledge of food production and the importance of gardening traditions among enslaved African Americans in the early nineteenth century. The presentation is sponsored by Virginia Tech's Department of Religion & Culture, Department of History, and Office for Inclusion and Diversity, and by the Peacock-Harper Culinary History Friends, and participants will have a chance to view related materials from Newman Library Special Collections. The event is free and open to the public, but online registration is recommended: https://goo.gl/forms/yxRxOegj6eIFbMCx2.
