Program Spotlight: Civil Rights—A Journey to Freedom
A quilt, like the one above under construction at the Gee's Bend Quilting Collective, represents many things: warmth, art, resourcefulness, and a connection between the past and present.
America, much like a quilt, is held together with contrasting parts and a notion that all are created equal. In defending this principle of human equality, many Americans have sacrificed their fortunes, honor, and even their lives. Yet so much still needs to be done. To be learned. To be understood. To change.
