Paper Quilt

Ratings: (0)|Views: 163|Likes:
On October 8, 2010, Black Women's Blueprint brought about 100 men and women together and created community with the purpose of speaking truth to power and reclaiming ourselves. Two films, A Girl Like Me, by then 17 year old Kiri Davis made in 2006 and Black Women on: The Light, Dark Thang by Celeste Crenshaw made in 1999 brought together our past, present and the relevance of the multigenerational pain and trauma caused by centuries of racism and its bi-product, colorism. In preparation for our discussion, two questions were asked of the audience and index cars where made available on which to share a personal answer which was then posted on what we called "a paper quilt" at the entrance of the space. This is the result of that activity. Thank you all for participating.
