"Field & Factory: Tobacco's Laborers" at Duke Homestead


Saturdays in February at 11:15am

To learn a fuller story of the people who worked in tobacco, join Duke Homestead staff on site for a special program, “Field & Factory: A Look at Tobacco’s Laborers.” These walks will highlight the contributions that each group of people working in tobacco made to North Carolina’s culture and powerful economy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, while addressing the inequalities in tobacco’s labor forces.

We will depart from the visitor’s center lobby at 11:15 on Saturday February 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th. Admission is free. There will be a limited amount of space, so please call the site at (919)627-6990 to reserve a spot.
