We welcome you to view the African, Asian American, Chicano and Native American (AAACNA) Studies Center’s latest exhibit, “This Woman’s Work: Unraveling the History of Quilts and Slavery,” featuring more than 50 quilted works along with photographs and quilting items on display at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library on the fifth floor. 

This exhibit highlights five extraordinary African American women who share their compelling and unique stories of the multigenerational craft of quilting. We invite the next generation to learn the long and rich history of quilting, draw inspiration from these stories, and share this historical work with the San José community and beyond.
