Freedom Center exhibition uses quilts to encourage racial healing and storytelling

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is turning to a familiar but perhaps unexpected item to confront racism in America. A new exhibit of quilts will be on display in “We Are the Story: A Visual Response to Racism,” organized and curated by Dr. Carolyn L. Mazloomi – courtesy of the Women of Color Quilters Network and part of Story Quilts, a program initiative created by Kathy Wade, executive director of Learning Through Art. The exhibition opens July 2 at the Freedom Center.
