Program Description

Event Details

Learn how quilts were used by abolitionists and fugitive slaves to signify escape routes along the Underground Railroad. Connie Martin will use hand-crafted quilt replicas to recount the stories passed down to her, a sixth-generation descendant of captured African slaves. Quilt stitching and patterns were used to communicate plans, warn of dangers, signal transportation, and identify “friends” along safe routes to the North.
