Today is Bloody Sunday

Martinโ€™s Dream, 74 X 87 inch sampler quilt by O.V. Brantley 2002. NFS

Today is Bloody Sunday. The Civil Rights Movement deeply affected my life. I was born in 1954 in segregated Crossett, AR. I am deeply grateful for the sacrifices that Martin Luther King, John Lewis and other civil rights activists made to make the world a better place.


My quilt Martin's Dream honors Martin Luther King, and my quilt He Inspires Us With His Words and Deeds honors John Lewis
