A Digital History Project hosted by the Lowcountry Digital Library at the College of Charleston
In the spring of 1865, Nat Fuller, a newly free African American cook, hosted what one observer described as a “miscegenation dinner” at his restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina. For both black and white guests, his feast celebrated Emancipation and the end of the U.S. Civil War. This exhibition explores Nat Fuller’s work and legacy as an enslaved cook, caterer, and restaurateur, and provides insight into the culinary history of antebellum Charleston. Published April 2015.
