Description
An enslaved young man named Dave was brought to Edgefield, in the heart of South Carolina's pottery-producing area. Dave showed exceptional natural talent. Soon he was creating pieces of great beauty and often massive size. He also learnt to read and write, even though South Carolina had laws prohibiting slave literacy. Then Dave did something even more daring: he began to sign his jars and carve many of them with sayings and short poems that reflected his daily life and experiences. With these courageous acts, Dave quietly protested through his art.

display_description Examines the life of Dave, a young African born in America, sold into slavery sometime before 1818. Dave worked for a potter and made many items out of clay. When he learned to read--at great personal risk due to the laws against allowing slaves to learn to read--Dave began etching poems into the pottery he made. Collects several of Dave's poems.
