This program is part of the Tarea Hall Pittman Social Justice Series. This program honors the legacy of Ms. Pittman’s social justice activism that positively affected the lives of people in California. Programming topics and formats are diverse but the goal of each event is to bring awareness and promote discussions related to human rights, social privilege, and equal opportunity.

African American Quilting with Peopleologie @West

Learn about quilting traditions and patterns passed down for generations from times of slavery and the Underground Railroad. Along with a slide show and touchable artifacts, you'll use math, geometry, and your imagination to create a shared wall-hanging (and maybe a second square to take home!) by re-purposing scraps.

Best for participants ages 5 and older.
