Social Justice Sewing

Elke Crile, of Carmel, Indiana, examines a quilt in honor of Trayvon Martin, whose 2012 death in Florida became a flashpoint in the racial justice cause and served as the inspiration for the formation of the Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA). Through March 10, the National Quilt Museum is displaying quilts from the SJSA, highlighting themes of justice for minorities and other marginalized groups. Admission is free through the rest of this month for McCracken County residents displaying a valid driver's license.
