This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A woodcarver and cabinetmaker, Thomas Day was born in Charleston, South Carolina as a free black in the early 19th Century.  He studied in Washington DC and Boston, and by 1818, had a workshop in North Carolina.  In 1823, he was living in Milton, North Carolina along the Dan River and purchased the Old yellow Brick Tavern, which he used as a workshop.  Using white and slave apprentices, he made furniture on a large-scale basis, selling to some of the state's most prosperous white citizens.

Of him it was said that he "had an outstanding career and achieved remarkable social standing during the state’s antebellum period."


Theresa Cederholm, Afro-American Artists, p.73
