Event Details

Celebrate Black History Month by learning about the Underground Railroad and Quilt Codes. 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. Space is limited to the first 15 participants, please sign-up at the Ask Us desk or over the phone.

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 age 55 and up.
