Fourth- and Fifth-graders Create Quilt Featuring Famous Black Changemakers
Lotspeich fourth- and fifth-graders created a quilt in honor of Black History Month. Students learned about Black changemakers throughout history during the month of February. For the quilt project, each student chose an influential person in African American history and created a paper quilt square featuring a drawing of the person and facts about the changemaker. The project was inspired by Faith Ringgold, an artist known for her story quilts that focus on topics such as civil rights and African American life and culture.
