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.
