Join Dr. Sharbreon Plummer as she takes us on a journey throughout history to uncover the connections between textiles, Black life and cultural memory. She will discuss her research which focuses on how quilting and fiber arts within the home served as one of the earliest forms of creative expression and cultural preservation for Black women—drawing parallels between how these stitches of the past inform present day artistry.
