Roundtable Discussion: The 5000 Quilt Project (In-Person @ Positive Exposure)
May 23, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Monday, May 23 @ POSITIVE EXPOSURE: 7 – 9 pm (In-Person Event)
Roundtable: From SAQM to The 5000 Quilt Project, led by SAQM Originator, Rev. Mark Koyama and Quilter, Dr. Harriet Ward
The lengthy process of collaborating on a quilt:
1) creates a community of shared purpose
2) provides a prolonged context for discussion and deep discernment
3) culminates in a work of art that has powerful symbolic resonance.
SAQM would like to take our vision to the next level and inaugurate a new project, The 5000 Quilt Project. This effort will engage churches, quilting guilds and schools across the nation to create 5000 quilts — each memorializing the life (not the death) of an African American individual who was lynched in during the troubled history of the United States.
What do we need to make this happen? How do we find partners and Funding? Discussions will introduce the idea of the The 5000 Quilt Project and actively seek your involvement.
