150 Years of Slavery in SOMD with Author Merideth Taylor

Merideth Taylor’s book "Making a Way Out of No Way: Lives of Labor, Love, and Resistance" is a richly imagined, illustrated narrative of 150 years of life in slavery on tobacco plantations in SOMD.

The photographs and stories grew out of Taylor’s quest to understand how people who were subjected to a system that made every attempt to brutalize and dehumanize them were able not only to survive but to build families and meaningful lives.

Join Merideth Taylor, author and photographer, as she shares images and stories from the book and talks about what inspired her to take on this project.
