This I Accomplish: Harriet Powers’ Bible Quilt and Other Pieces

Kyra E. Hicks
Black Threads Press; $19.95

This is a fascinating look into the stories behind the well-known Bible Quilt and Pictorial Quilt and the former Georgia slave who created them. Kyra Hick’s enthusiasm for the subject is truly contagious as she takes you along tracing how the quilts made their way from Harriet Power’s hands to the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, respectively. She began this study by compiling a bibliography and started to challenge the assumptions about Mrs. Powers and the quilts. In the end, she offered us a compelling narrative with new facts and left herself with a dozen ideas for further research and celebration into Mrs. Powers. Includes an extensive bibliography.

Here’s a link, if you’d like to add it to your library.
