Road Trip to the Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement

Daughter India and I kicked off Black History Month with one of our epic mother/daughter road trips, this time to Montgomery, AL., the cradle of the Civil Rights Movement.

We were officially working on behalf of the Atlanta Quilt Festival finalizing plans for the Good Trouble Quilts — Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Congressman John Lewis exhibit which is scheduled to exhibit at the Civil Rights Memorial Center March 3 - March 31. The exhibit premiered at the 2022 Atlanta Quilt Festival and is now touring.

After we finished our business at the civil rights memorial followed by lunch at Mrs. B’s, we toured the Legacy Museum. There is so much to see, learn, process and analyze. Aside from the history, the book store is amazing! Everyone should visit this museum.

As for quilts, I was happy to see a quilt by my friend Dawn Williams Boyd in the permanent collection of the Legacy Museum and prominently displayed in the gallery.

We returned home with renewed resolve.
