Feeser recounts particular histories—uncovered for the 1st time in the course of her research—of how the local americans and African slaves made the good fortune of indigo in South Carolina attainable. She additionally emphasizes the fabric tradition round specific gadgets, together with maps, prints, work, and garments. Red, White, and Black Make Blue is a fraught and compelling background of either exploitation and empowerment, revealing the legacy of a modest plant with a large impact.
