Black Craftspeople Across the Virginia Landscape

October 21, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for Wilton House Museum’s 2021-2022 virtual lecture series!

Our second lecture of the season features Victoria Hensley.

The Black Craftspeople Digital Archive seeks to enhance what we know about Black craftspeople by telling both a spatial story and a historically informed story that highlights the lives of Black craftspeople and the objects they produced. This fall, the BCDA will launch the Virginia portion of the archive and map. Together, we will dive into the lives of these Virginians, learn their stories, and understand how they shaped the landscape and material culture of the state.

Hensley is a PhD candidate in Middle Tennessee State University’s Public History Program. For the past year and a half, she has worked with Black Craftspeople Digital Archive as their Tennessee and Virginia research lead and social media manager.

This virtual presentation will take place on Zoom. While we hope you can join us live, a recording of this lecture will be available for viewing for one month after the lecture date.

Tickets for this event are available through Eventbrite.
