SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v107 n6 p40-41 Feb 2008
Gee's Bend is a small community near Selma, Alabama where cotton plantations filled the land before the Civil War. After the war, the freed slaves of the plantations worked as tenant farmers and founded an African-American community. In 2002, the women of this community brought international attention and acclaim to Gee's Bend through the art of their unusual quilting. In this article, the author presents a quilting activity for students inspired by Gee's Bend quilts.
