The Shakers [electronic resource]: I Don't Want to Be Remembered as a Chair

BBC Worldwide Ltd
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This unique and touching program opens the doors of America's last Shaker compound, where the religious sect's nine surviving members lead lives of equality, fraternity, decency, and-most notably-simplicity. That simplicity is reflected in Shaker furniture and basketry-items which now sell for thousands of dollars at auctions throughout the world. At one antique auction, hucksters peddle Shaker furniture to the rich and famous, as the Shakers ponder their legacy. Will they be remembered as austere people-pious and charitable and filled with wisdom-or simply as the makers of priceless ornaments?
