Black History Month Celebrations Begin Today

From Africa To Atlanta By Way of Arkansas, 72 x 72 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2004.

Atlanta is absolutely the best  place to live during Black History Month. Events are scheduled throughout the month that celebrate the great contributions of African-Americans, both in the past and the present. Check the local paper for lots of inspiring events.

My quilt From Africa to Atlanta by Way of Arkansas is a documentary of my life. It  constantly reminds  me to never forget what came before.

This quilt is part of my African Canvas Memory Quilt series. The other quilts in the series of 100 quilts are posted online.
