Seminolefrican in Purple is the title of this latest piece which combines African and Native American textile styles. It is documented that the Seminole Indians of Georgia and Florida accepted runaway African slaves and free men into their fold. The two groups learned and thrived from each other which was viewed as a threat to the status quo of United States government who dealt with them accordingly. This work salutes the idea of cultures coming together for a common good and represents what could have been another successful and culturally vibrant American community. Seminolefrican in Purple will be showcased with the Harlem Girls Quilting Circles The Color Purple Exhibition which is part of HOAST (Harlem Open Artist Studio Tour), 10/4 & 10/5 at 27 Mount Morris Park West bt. 122nd and 123rd Streets.
