In colonial South Carolina, the growing of indigo and the making of the beautiful blue dye from that plant was an important cash crop that England depended on. But it was a labor-intensive agriculture that used not only  slave labor but also depended on the land and sometimes the slave labor of Native Americans. Tune in tonight and learn about the political and material cultural history of indigo, a color that touched the lives of the rich and wealthy in America and Europe as well as slaves and Native Americans. We talk with ANDREA FEESER, Associate Professor of Art and Architectural History at Clemson University. Her new book is RED, WHITE, AND BLACK MAKE BLUE: INDIGO IN THE FABRIC OF COLONIAL SOUTH CAROLINA.
