And Still We Rise

Another trip to the Freedom Center, this time with Carrye, to concentrate on just the quilt exhibit, And Still We Rise.

I was very struck by this quilt, probably because of the parallel between race-based marriage legalities then (1967) and gay marriage legalities today.

Tucked among the flowers, and not easy to see at just a glance, are pictures of interracial couples. 

I really don't remember much about controversary about interracial marriage, probably because I was concentrating on graduating from college and moving to a new city.  I need to do some research.
