  The Quilts of Gee's Bend
 
One of the most compelling human stories and discoveries in recent American art - The most significant exhibition of black-made quilts ever mounted Gee's Bend. Alabama is like no other place in America. There the bonds between the nineteenth century and the twenty-first are still as vital as the masterpiece quilts made by the town's women, many of whom learned their art from their grandmothers born in slavery. Since the 1970s, Gee's Bend has struggled to survive as a community; many young people migrated north or further south, while their parents and grandparents adjusted to a chronically economy and lack of opportunities. Today, Wilcox County remains 70 percent black and one of the poorest places in the United States. Gee's Bend has relatively few remaining residents, yet they continue to be a remarkably close-knit and resilient people, whose sense of place and identity has withstood every setback.
