These quilts were made by W.C.Q.N. members for two exhibitions: And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversations, and Visioning Human Rights in the New Millennium: Quilting the World’s Conscience. The quilts exhibited in And Still We Rise trace 400 years of African presence in the United States. The exhibit was curated to celebrate the quartercentennial anniversary of the landing of the first enslaved Africans in the United States 400 years ago in Point Comfort, VA. Visioning Human Rights celebrates the 50th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights. The struggle for human rights is global. Through artistic expression, utilizing the canvas of quilts, the artists interpreted the 30 Articles of the Declaration of Human Rights.
