Texas Enslaved and Free Black Potters: Reconstructing Deconstructed Legacies

While some studies have found none, The United States Census Slave Schedules and Texas Historical Societies indicate that the most celebrated pottery vessels in Texas before 1860, were possibly made by enslaved Black artisans. This research will document the legacies of Texas Enslaved and Free Black Potters from 1850-1920.
