Women and Quilting as a Political Act

Quilting, historically a story-telling tool, is an art form used for generations by women to tell their stories and represent their individuality. Dr. Saundra Curry Ardrey led the audience of 50 in a discussion of how an explosion and exploration of memories and personal nostalgia combine pop culture and political references to make powerful statements about the political and social condition.


Dr. Saundra Curry Ardrey is head of the Department of Political Science and Director of the African American Studies Program at Western Kentucky University. Her current research projects include a comparative analysis of the political behavior of women of the African diaspora.
