The center of the quilt is a strip quilt made of African fabrics. Aleathia embroidered the words “unity”, “purpose”, “community” and “culture” in the border of the quilt to give the quilt extra meaning.

We hope you will take a moment this month to reflect upon and celebrate the amazing contributions that African Americans have made to our country.
