A slave's story
Artifacts of American slavery are usually all the horror hardware that remind us of things we'd rather not think about. But within that nightmare there are some examples of individual achievement and accomplishment. The story of David Drake, a slave who lived in Edgefield, Delaware is told through his pottery and the poems inscribed on them.
