A beautiful and inspiring story about Harriet Powers who was born into slavery but created art (in the form of story quilts) that was able to rise above the hate and raise one spirits. I love that alongside the story of her life were additional patchwork facts.
I also appreciated how the quilts she worked on were included with explanations.
A wonderful biography of an artist who I knew a little bit about and was pleased to learn more about. Mary Cassatt was another example of someone who wasn’t going to let the world put her in a place. She knew what she wanted and went for it- with a little help from some fellow artists. And the world was made more beautiful because of it. Gorgeous illustrations.
