NEH on the Road: Grass Roots

Ancillary public humanities programs to accompany the NEH on the Road: Grass Roots traveling exhibition.

Featuring baskets from the lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia, as well as from diverse regions of Africa including Senegal and South Africa, Grass Roots examines the origins of the African-American coiled basketry tradition on American shores, from the domestication of rice in Africa two millenia ago, through the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and the Carolina rice plantation, and then into the present day.
