Michael Smalls, a 7th generation basket-sewer, was taught by his great-grandmother, Lucinda Pringle, who own mother was an enslaved worker on Mt. Pleasant's Laurel Hill Plantation.
Dino Badger, a former apprentice of Michael Smalls, now partners with him, creating baskets and appearing in educational demostrations throughout the state.
Often as they sew, Michael and Dino pray for the well-being of the basket's future owner.
