I Wish I Knew How it Feels to be Free – A Conversation with Carolyn Mazloomi and Dorothy Burge
Tuesday, November 17, 2020, 2 pm (CST) • A part of the We Are the Story initiative
Textile Center and Women of Color Quilters Network are pleased to present the first in a series of We Are the Story: Let’s Talk About Race Zoom conversations.
For this conversation we welcome artist, educator, and community activist Dorothy Burge of Chicago and curator Carolyn Mazloomi.
“During this Zoom conversation, Dorothy will speak about how she witnessed and experienced social injustice in the criminal justice system,” Mazloomi says. “Dorothy’s quilts are designed to touch the viewer’s heart, head, and hands. They educate, promote meaningful discussion, and encourage the viewers to take action on systemic injustices that impact African Americans in this country.”
Burge’s exhibit I Wish I Knew How it Feels to be Free is currently on view at Textile Center through December 24, 2020, as part of the We Are the Story initiative — a series of seven quilt exhibitions and special events taking place in the Twin Cities through June 12, 2021.
