9780870134104: African American Quiltmaking in Michigan

Essays by Marsha MacDowell, Darlene Clark Hine, Cuesta Benberry, and Bill Harris examine the history and meaning of quilting in individual artist's lives and within the contexts of community and family. Also included are excerpts of interviews with quilters Sarah Carolyn Reese, Ione Todd, Deonna Green, and Rosa Parks. In recent years, the study of quilts and quiltmaking has provided Americans with a new vehicle for understanding their past. In the spirit of this renewed interest, African American Quiltmaking in Michigan makes a valuable historical contribution and is the first book on the quiltmaking traditions of African Americans in Michigan. With 4-color printing throughout, with over 100 illustrations, it brings together many images in the exploration of African American quilting. In addition, the interviews examine quiltmaking as a form women have used to contribute to the historic meaning of the African American family and community.
