Description

Patricia A. Montgomery's swing coats illustrate African America women's contributions to the Civil Rights Movement.  Each coat represents one unsung heroine such as Ella Josephine Baker, who mentored young civil rights leaders, or Claudette Colvin, a teenager who refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama nine months before Rosa Parks’ arrest.

The combination of African American quilting traditions, digital images, pastel drawings and thread work are designed into a wearable object, detailing the stories of the Civil Rights Movement heroines.
