AND STILL WE RISE IN 2018, May 5, 2018

“And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversations” chronicles 400 years of significant events that have transformed social justice for African Americans on 67 story quilts hand-crafted by artists in the Women of Color Quilter’s Network (WCQN).

Curated by Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi and organized by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the Cincinnati Museum Center, this national traveling exhibition showcases the diversity of techniques and textiles used in quilting, and its enduring appeal as forms of folk art and narrative storytelling.

A visual exploration of history from the 17th to 21st centuries, the exhibition reveals the triumph of the human spirit, inspiring visitors to reflect on 400 years of African American history to commemorate Black History Month at the California Museum.
