Black Women Power.



Harriet Powers (1837 –1910) slave, folk artist & quilt maker. She used traditional appliqué techniques to record local legends, Bible stories, and astronomical events on her quilts. 2 of her quilts have survived: Bible Quilt 1886 and Pictorial Quilt 1898. Her quilts are considered among the finest examples of nineteenth-century Southern quilting. Her work is on display at the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.
