Here is a link to information about the Lynch Quilts Project.
“The Lynch Quilts Project is a community based effort, which explores the history and ramifications of racial violence, specifically lynching, in the United States through the textile tradition of quilting. The project consists of a series of six quilts tackling the lynching phenomenon from various perspectives such as collective memory, communal conflict, gender, healing and politics. The quilts combine a variety of traditional and contemporary quilting techniques to examine how the past, present and future are intricately connected.
At the core of this project is not only a healing ritual, but a memorial process.
America, we are at a cross roads and now is the time to choose a future based on the reality of history. For it is the only way to move forward.”

One of the quilts was on exhibit at the Central Library in Indianapolis a number of years ago. I took the following photo there.
