2010 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Amma will create a series of quilts to commemorate the site of the first Presidential mansion of George Washington and the nine enslaved African Americans held on the grounds as servants. The quilts will be used as backdrops during dance performances by Amma and then will be used as teaching tools in workshops about the codes and symbols utilized by early African American quilters. Amma hopes to stimulate pride and passion about the tradition of quilting and impart upon her students the importance of creating stories as testaments of our lives, leaving fingerprints for future generations. The students will ultimately be charged with designing their own symbols to be used in future quilts.
