Any plans to share your research with Dr. Tiffany Momon’s BCDA (Black Craftspeople Digital Archive)?
Did you say that the Hyde Park area is still whites only? Or did I imagine this…?
Do you machine piece your quilt blocks? ( I am actually piecing some flying geese blocks as I listen!)
Are Sanborn maps only for Austin?
There are other ways to use photos in printing....that are maybe easier to find...photo lithography for one...check with art colleges or art departments
BCDA is archiving the contributions of Black makers in the US prior to the Civil War. It’s amazing.
