Fall Zoom Meeting: Patterns from the Underground Railroad
Let’s get together this fall to explore the many stories of quilts as tools in the Underground Railroad. It is one thing to admire the bravery of passengers and conductors, but someone had to stitch all those quilts! Made by black and white hands, these common, simple patchwork patterns held messages which were woven into songs and poems so the travelers could recognize the patterns and meanings.
At a time when so much of American history is being challenged or discredited, the need to share and open the discussion is stronger than ever. You don’t have to be a quilter to join this book discussion and quilting circle. The patterns will be explained, but the conversation is just as valuable.
To encourage healthy discourse, familiarity with the theories of and stories within the 1619 project is required. The book is available on amazon, audible, your local library, your best friend’s bookshelf, or you can watch the mini series on Hulu.
