Join us for a viewing of The Quiltmakers of Gee's Bend

"This award-winning film airs nationally on PBS. It documents the lives of a group of African-American women from Alabama's Black Belt region, who see their lives radically changed as their artwork is suddenly recognized and embraced by the elite American museum world."

This is a Films & Videos program from SFPL. From feature films to youth-made videos, we’ve got something great to watch.

These cultural events are free and open to the public. Check out all of our Black History Month programs and share your own thoughts on race at Race in the Public Eye.
