Welcome to the companion guide for the quilts currently on display in the library.  These guides will hang from January through March. Quilt artists are: Michelle Howard-Harrell, Celeste Janey, Brenda Jones, Jonetta Jones, Olga King, Mildred Maines, Valerie Poitier, Jeannette Spencer, Hattie Talley. All photos were taken by RCC photographer Phuong Tang. Please stop by to see them!  You can also view these pictures of the Quilt Exhibit on our library's flickr.  

In this guide, you'll find links to the catalog for books, as well as many other resources, about quilting and the connections between quilting and African-American history.  The tabs at the top of this page will direct you to information about books, articles, streaming videos, and online resources. If you have any trouble finding these sources, please ask a librarian for help.
