It's impossible to explore the history and heritage of the Tidewater Potomac region and not talk about tobacco. So that's what we're going to do. Join us virtually from 7-8 pm on Tuesdays this fall to talk about tobacco. We're going to dig deep into how this plant horn-wormed its way into our lives and shaped the land and the culture of the place that we call home.
Tuesday Tobacco Talks has four virtual sessions:
Tuesday, October 20: Planting Power: Tobacco as a Status Indicator in the 18th Century
Tuesday, November 10: A Scientific Study of Sot-Weed
Tuesday, November 17: Buyouts and Beauty Queens: Tobacco Culture in the 20th Century
Tuesday, November 24: Sacred Tobacco: A Native Plant
Sign up for individual sessions at $10/each or register for all four sessions for $35 here: bit.ly/2SwFZD2
Proceeds from this program support the Accokeek Foundation's land conservation work and educational programs.
