Putting Together the Pieces: Alice Walker’s Everyday Use and Quilting Tradition, co-hosted by Alabama State University
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dr. Jacqueline Trimble and Dr. Cat Gubernatis Dannen of ASU will lead a gallery talk in Sewn Together: Two Centuries of Alabama Quilts, drawing upon Alice Walker’s famous story Everyday Use in which quilts are a symbol of African American identity.  We will examine both the symbolism and context of the story alongside the quilts on the walls that were made by Alabamians and intended for everyday use.
