Day Tripping: The National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center

Sue Parker tipped the Blog off about the quilting exhibit that is currently at the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center:

I don't think you've covered the quilt exhibit at the National Afro American Museum in Wilberforce.

Journey of Hope: Quilts inspired by President Barack Obama. There is a book that goes with the exhibit. I think seniors are traveling over there this week from Yellow Springs. It's a wonderful, remarkable exhibit. Carolyn Mazloomi, a quilter herself, solicited quilts from all over the world, so the people doing them are of different races, nationalities, persuasions, etc. Floyd Thomas is the acting director over there and is trying hard to keep it going.

The mission of the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center is to educate the public about African American history and culture from the African origins to the present by collecting, preserving, and interpreting material evidence of the Black experience

I went to see this exhibit several weeks ago. It really is well worth a trip to the museum.
