Tribute to the Civil Rights Movement: Quilted Swing Coats by Patricia A. Montgomery, Presented by the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles
Join us for an artist talk with Oakland-based artist Patricia Montgomery, who will discuss her important series Tribute to the Civil Rights Movement: Quilted Swing Coats. The Civil Rights Movement, led by African Americans who used nonviolent civil disobedience actions, transformed the United States and became a catalyst for other national and international civil disobedience protests that followed. This series recognizes and celebrates the many African American women who made major contributions to the Civil Rights Movement in the form of story quilts created in African American traditional quilting design and construction techniques. Each quilt is structured in the shape of a swing coat that illustrates these women’s individual stories and historical impact.
