About The History of Quilting and Activism Workshop

Join artist Sandra Clarke for an interactive presentation! From the origins of European quilts to descendants of American slaves in Gee’s Bend, to the Freedom Quilts of the 1960s and 1980s AIDS quilts, participants will learn how quilts played an integral part in communication, civil rights, and protest movements. The rich history of quilting and activism has a contemporary life that will also be discussed.
