Summary
"This publication and exhibition, featuring quilts made in 2016 and 2016, was developed by The Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation (D&LTLF) and the Michigan State University Museum (MSUM) in association with textile artists in South Africa and United States, especially members of the Women of Color Quilt Network. These works pay tribute to the indelible contributions that Desmond and Leah Tutu have made in addressing human rights, advancing social justice issues, and advocating for peace in South Africa and around the world. This art also honours their faith and the enduring love they have for each other."--from preface.
