In conjunction with its special exhibit From Slave to Sharecropper, The Charleston Museum hosts a lecture and book-signing event. Leonard Todd will tell the compelling story of a potter named Dave, who was a slave owned by Todd's ancestors. This remarkable 19th-century artist has become well known for the beauty and sometimes massive size of his alkaline-glazed pottery, as well as for the poetic verses inscribed on many of his vessels.
