Interview with basketmaker Lucreaty Clark

Interview with basketmaker Lucreaty Clark

Date
1979-10-31
Description
Six reel to reels. Lucreaty Clark was a white oak basket maker, a tradition that stretched back in her family to antebellum times. In 1979, no one else was making split white oak baskets, and she presumed the tradition would die with her. (In the mid-1980s, she trained her grandson Alphonso Jennings to make white oak baskets.) T79-23: Topics included plantation work, cooking, her first marriage, her children, Brer Rabbit tales, games, and smoking beef. T79-25: Clark discusses how she chooses the white oak to make her baskets, how she splits the wood, her tools, selling the baskets, sues of the baskets, and how her parents taught her the skill. T79-26: Clark talks about raising hogs, Christmas baskets, and various basket types. T79-27: Clark talks about giving birth, weather predictions, raising her kids, snakes in the area, and her grandchildren. T79-28: Recording of Clark making a basket while she narrates throughout the process. Afterwards, she talks about -- and tells -- stories from her childhood, including ghost stories, Brer rabbit tales, and Little Red Riding Hood. T79-29: She discusses marriage and kids, midwives, losing her last child during childbirth, morning sickness, medicinal cures for childbirth pains, birthmarks, pregnancy superstitions, and how to finish a basket.

The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.

Date
1994-01-21
Description
One audio cassette. Apprentice Jones had to learn from Bowers to select, gather, and prepare stems, make six baskets, and learn cultural background. For more information, see S 1644, box 11, folder 21. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller, and then Robert Stone. The program was continued each year through 2004.
