This mini-exhibit examines the legacy of rice cultivation in the Americas. Set within the Resetting the Table exhibition, Rice explores the essential African knowledge systems required to establish what became a thriving industry, the horrific human toll the Atlantic Slave Trade took to maintain it, and the vibrant, enduring culture of the Gullah Geechee, descendants of enslaved Africans whose basket making and coastal subsistence traditions continue today.
