In honor of Juneteenth this year, I am sharing the public a recording of Textile Society of America’s 2022 colloquium series, (re)claiming futures.
“Surviving Blackness in America: Quilts as Political Statement”
Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi led a panel of leading Black quilters—Ed Johnetta Miller, Dorothy Burge and L’Merchie Frazier—who discussed their artwork through the lens of social justice, protest, and as a reflection of past and current situations adversely affecting the African American community.
These quilters are all members of the Women of Color Quilters Network, founded by Dr. Mazloomi. Karen Hampton, artist, TSA member made the opening and closing remarks.
(re)claiming futures is generously supported by the Lenore Tawney Foundation.
