History Lunch Break: A New Look at Thomas Day

April 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Thomas Day was a free person of color and one of the more successful furniture makers in nineteenth-century North Carolina. Day’s clients were some of the most influential antebellum businessmen and politicians of the time, including Blandwood owner Governor John Motley Morehead here in Greensboro. On the next History Lunch Break, we’ll talk with Blandwood Museum about the exhibition New Perspectives on Thomas Day – Pairing Furniture by North Carolina’s Free Black Master Craftsman with Contemporary Pieces from Governor Morehead’s Blandwood.

Free program.
