Oh, Freedom! Quilting Project

Creating community quilts to commemorate and memorialize the people and places in the Hudson Valley who were important in the historic fight for
freedom and emancipation.

We learn together – about the little-known history of the antislavery movement,
the Underground Railroad, and role of enslaved people in building the economy
and culture of the Hudson Valley

We create together – textile art that will be exhibited throughout the region and
will support ongoing learning and reflection on this important part of our history
The Oh, Freedom! Quilting Project collaborates with organizations throughout the
region including Celebrating the African Spirit, the Putnam History Museum,
Communilife, Oakwood Friends School, and the Poughkeepsie Public Library.

The Project is supported in part by the Good Neighbors Program of Vassar College
and the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley.
