Stitched into Memory celebrates and commemorates the historic and contemporary African Diaspora communities of Boston (Afro American, Afro Caribbean and Afro Latino) through an exploration of West African textile traditions.  In collaboration with the Friends of Fort Point, Stephen Hamilton, lead artist, will bring together Boston youth who will embark on a creative and educational journey that culminates in an installation that will span 6 ft. x 30 ft. composed of cotton canvas, muslin, and handwoven cloth, dyed in natural Indigo, incorporating bead work, embroidery, and other traditional arts.
