A video that is shown as part of builders and artisans exhibit in the Decorative Arts Gallery inside the Penelope Barker House Welcome Center details the architectural and cultural importance of East Gale Street — a historic, African American neighborhood in Edenton, North Carolina. This video showcases the Badham family that built the Kadesh A.M.E. Zion Church. Hannibal Sr., and his sons, Hannibal Jr. and Miles. Robert Price and the other African American builders in Edenton had the skills to create ornate and remarkably well-built homes and buildings on East Gale Street. The roots of those skills are found in the business of enslavement.
