Last night Gee’s Bend opened at Playhouse In The Park and I attended with twenty students who participate in the Glad House Saturday program. The play and the actors are amazing.
Gee’s Bend is the inspiring story of the women of Gee’s Bend, Alabama, who sew quilts that turn out to be magnificent works of art, and their deeply personal journey which parallels the turbulent history of African-Americans in the 20th century. The true story of these wonderful women has already touched millions who viewed their stunning quilt work through a national exhibition tour and features in Newsweek and Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine.
The Glad House students also created a story quilt that is on display at Playhouse in the Park and to see their faces when they saw their quilt hanging was priceless.
