Harriet Tubman and My Grandmother's Quilts

The African American Quartet

Artist Lorenzo Pace uses his grandmother's quilts in a powerful, personal, and artistic presentation of Harriet Tubman's heroic participation in the Underground Railroad. The Pace family artifacts are like the quilts slaves made and used for giving signals and directions to those seeking freedom. His unique narrative voice and point of view make this a brilliant, age-appropriate informational text.
