Presented through a series of narrative and graphic quilts, Glendora Simonson reveals glimpses of her life as an African American woman, teacher, artist, activist and crafter.

In addition to being a voracious reader, Ms. Simonson also enjoyed a variety of crafting and textile activities. Quiltmaking proved to be the perfect medium to express creatively and contemplate social events.
