Covering our Heritage: African-American Quilts of Champaign-Urbana was an exhibit at the Krannert Art Museum featuring local quilters in 1994. Here is a description of the exhibit from a KAM flyer of the time.
"Quilts made by Champaign-Urbana residents in the "Covering Our Heritage" exhibitton have the same qualities of improvisati on and uniqueness as those gathered from around the country for the national exhibition. The local exhibition is a cooperative effort. Members of the Douglass Annex Seniors helped to collect the quilts for the exhibition. A group of sixty sub-freshmen at University High School interviewed
the quilters as part of an oral history project under the directi on of Barbara Wysocki and Philippa Kaplan, social studies teachers. Community Radio Station WEFT trained students in the use of equipment and helped them create finished programs from their raw interview tapes. These programs will air on WEFT and will be available on headsets at the exhibition. Project organizers are Linda Duke, director of education, Krannert Art
Museum; Barbara Wysocki , head of social studies, University High School; Linda Neuman, station manager, WEFT Community Radio; Barbara McGee, director of senior programs, Douglass Center Annex, Champaign Park District; and members of the Black History Committee, Douglass Center Annex.
