Item description:

"Queens”. This quilted wall hanging features an assemblage of beautiful African Woman in in regal gold, fuchsia, and emerald tones. Quilt size is 31 x 55 inches. Malala Compton-Rock said, “When a woman is at her best, when a woman reaches her full potential everyone around her profits”. I made this piece in celebration of fierce and courageous women. This piece honors The Suffragettes who led the passing of the 19th Amendment. This piece honors women like Boynton Robinson and Diane Nash who organized the march from Selma to Alabama, and sit-ins during the civil rights protests in 1965. This piece is in support of the women who will rise up and let their voices be heard on November 3, 2020 because as we all know voting is necessary on the journey to justice and equality.
