Their enslaved ancestor’s pottery sells for over $1 million. They get nothing.

Thank you for sharing Mark. I saw the exhibit on Friday at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. It was a beautiful exhibition, the pots were huge, most much larger than the replica shown in the article. But as LinR said, a sad subject. Many of the pots had writings on them and it was explained in the descriptions that the potter could have been punished for the writings since slaves were not supposed to know how to read or write.

If in the Boston area or have the opportunity to visit the traveling exhibit, I highly recommend it.
