Tea & Talk: Giving Voice – Ball’s African American Work Force

October 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Cost: $16; member discounts apply

While Ball Brothers Company is frequently noted for its iconic product – the Ball jar – what do we know about the people who toiled inside the factory walls? In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many new African American families and individuals were attracted to Muncie as industry boomed. Many of these new residents found employment at Ball Brothers. Join Jessica Jenkins, Minnetrista’s Vice President of Collections and Storytelling, to learn more about their experiences and the work of giving voice to under-told histories.
