Through the month of February, come view sample quilt squares of the controversial Underground Railroad Secret Code. The quilts were crafted signal, message, and instruct the Conductor or escaping slaves how to reach freedom in the north. Also on display is a 1960s era hand-pieced and stitched quilt created by native American sisters in the American south.
The display will be in the Hartman Gallery during February.
