Basket Teacher at Penn School with Class

The first basket teacher at the Penn School worked to revive and perpetuate the African basket making skills among the children of the Sea Islands. The baskets made had a wide range of utilitarian purposes, from fanning rice to blow away the chaff, to carrying goods to market or storing them within the home.
