We Didn't Wait for Freedom: A Quilt Exhibit for Black History Month
Friday, February 17, 2023
Join us in celebrating Black History Month and the work of quilter Vera Hall. In her We Didn't Wait For Freedom quilt series, Hall bridges the gap between history and her love of textiles with her quilt creations honoring the lives of famous African Americans whose actions inspired change in America.
Also on display will be quilt blocks made by members of the Uhuru Quilters Guild of Prince George's County. This guild was founded in 1994 to promote the works of African American quilters and preserve the tradition, culture, and history of quilting.
