Fire and Freedom: Food and Enslavement in Early America is an exhibition from the U.S. National Library of Medicine that looks at the Chesapeake region, where European settlers relied upon indentured servants, Native Americans, and African slave labor for life-saving knowledge of farming and food acquisition, and to gain economic prosperity. By examining the labor of slaves and food practices of the time, including those at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, the exhibition explores how power was exchanged between and among different peoples, races, genders, and classes during the early colonial era
