In years past, quilts have been used as resources in reconstructing the experiences of enslaved African-American women. Quilts have acted as historical records of the cultural and political past of enslaved people and have assisted in documenting their contributions to quilting as an art form. In this lecture, Sandra will discuss how enslaved women were responsible for spinning, weaving, sewing, and quilting for their enslavers. She will also discuss the lives of the enslaved quilters and their enslavers as well as the significance of the fabrics and patterns that were used to make the quilts. NOTE: All lectures will take place in the Westin Peachtree Ballroom, approximately a 5-10 minute walk from the quilt show building.
