Stitched Stories: Shauntay Grant and Family in conversation

"In the late 1700s and early 1800s, thousands of Blacks evaded American slavery and migrated north to Nova Scotia. With them they brought their songs, stories, language, customs, and crafts," explains the Dal art gallery. Amongst these crafts were quilts, richly patterned, "a refined practice passed down from generation to generation, woman to woman."
At this event, Shauntay Grant passes on the stories sewn into her family quilts with us all, displaying and discussing their themes with her grandmother and other family members.
