Event Details

Celebrate Black History Month by learning about the Underground Railroad and Quilt Codes. It is believed secret codes and symbols were sewn into quilts and used as visual maps to assist fugitive slaves in their escape to freedom. You’ll create your own Log Cabin quilt design using colorful paper.

Black History Month recognizes, celebrates, and honors the rich and diverse history and important contributions and achievements of African Americans, and is observed annually during the month of February.

For adults
