Area Students, Residents Create Colorful Patches for Large Community Quilt

The following information was sent to us by Valerie Faustine:

In celebration of Black History Month, area residents will join the Prince George’s African American Museum & Cultural Center’s Culture Keepers to create patches for a large Community Quilt at The Mall at Prince Georges on Saturday, February 18 from 12pm to 4pm in Center Court. Experienced guest quilters will assist the public in creating a quilt depicting community life in Prince George’s County. Adding to the cultural experience, the mural “Gorgeous Prince George’s: Then & Now,” on display on the wall adjacent to Target, depicts scenes in Prince George’s County from colonial times to the present crafted by students from 12 Prince George’s County high schools.

The PGAAMCC’s Culture Keepers is an after school program that teaches students about African American history, art, and culture through interactive, hands on experiences during after-school workshops and Saturday field trips. For more information: http://www.pgaamcc.org/.
