Charleston Literary Festival

Dock Street Theater 135 Church Street, Charleston

David Drake, an enslaved man in South Carolina (born around 1801), is recognised as one of the United States’ most accomplished potters, with work displayed in museums and galleries across the nation. Uniquely, his jars contain eloquent inscriptions and poems, flaunting his literacy, prohibited among enslaved people. In conversation with Malika Pryor-Martin, internationally celebrated visual artist Jonathan Green with Greenville’s first poet laureate Glenis Redmond reveal how their creativity has been inspired by David Drake.
