The History of Shade Tobacco (3-Week Class 10/31, 11/7, 11/14) (Thursdays, 1:30pm-4:00pm)  

The shade tobacco industry had a huge social and economic impact on the character of the people and communities in this area, known as the “Shade Tobacco Capital of the World” (with a 1900 Paris World’s Fair first place award to prove it). With active production from 1890–1978, this was a very profitable but complex agricultural industry. In this course we discuss the cultivation, processing and inventions relating to this enterprise, as well as the social and economic impact not only on this area, but worldwide. Two classes will be held in the Havana Shade Tobacco Museum. One class will be a visit to an 1840-1978 tobacco farm, with barns, many artifacts and remarkably preserved worker housing. NOTE: Soft drinks and water is available. Attendees may bring their choice of snacks. REQUIREMENT: Ability to walk. These sessions will involve walking around the Museum exhibits, and the farm grounds, barns, and tenant housing. Class size limit: 35.
