Story-telling through quilts
I have an image, of an actor telling stories of community health experiences in Sierra Leone, while working on quilt blocks. I've begun exploring the history of quilting among Black women in Canada and the United States. So many interesting facets and junctures to this journey. The Vale Quilters of Nova Scotia have a fabulous exhibit of their quilts, which present some of Nova Scotia's Black history. Their work, titled "The Secret Code" is currently being shown on Prince Edward Island and slated for display at the Textile Museum of Canada in April, 2023. The exhibit is described here: www.halifaxexaminer.ca/black-nova-scotia/stitching-together-a-history-of-quilting-in-african-nova-scotia-communities/.
