WE WHO BELIEVE IN FREEDOM

New exhibit curated by Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi and the Women of Color Quilters Network

***Media Day***

Through artistic expression utilizing the canvas of quilts, the artists of Women of Color Quilters Network have produced works reflecting social commentary on the civil rights movement and issues of race in America. These quilts and their images are symbols of liberation, resistance and empowerment, layered with memories and meanings.

This exhibition is dedicated to all the African American women who played a role in the civil rights movement, who felt their voices were marginalized and their contributions ignored.

Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi is the Founder of the Women of Color Quilters Network and the curator of several museum exhibitions for the organization for over forty years.

We Who Believe in Freedom opens Saturday, April 6 at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
