As part of Black History Month, Duke Homestead, at 2828 Duke Homestead Road, Durham, North Carolina, is presenting a special guided tour, “Field & Factory: A Look at Tobacco’s Laborers” in February.
The tour will highlight the voice of Viola Bond, who worked for Liggett & Myers and American Tobacco Company. Tours will address 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.
