Event Details

African Americans have a long tradition of making the objects of everyday life stretching back to their first days in the Americas. Carver High School graduate Charles Harrison (September 23, 1931 – November 29, 2018) carried this tradition forward in his 32-year career as an industrial designer at Sears, Roebuck & Company. Harrison created iconic products such as the View-Master children’s toy and the plastic garbage container, and his practical innovations touched many lives. Join Community Educator Princess E. Crump for a presentation and Q&A about the life of Charles Harrison.
