Learn about music genres from African American history and culture in this award-winning educational documentary! Kids can also make a quilt square with the African American Quilt Circle of San Antonio, and participate in activities with dancer Tanesha Payne, poet-musician Andrea Vocab Sanderson, mezzo-soprano Veronica Williams, and lead actress Cynthia Freeman Gibbs. Recommended for ages 8+.

This San Antonio Public Library event is in partnership with Musical Bridges Around the World, a local nonprofit arts organization and producers of “The Quilt: A Living History of African American Music”. The film is an educational documentary recommended for ages 8+ that explores the music genres born and formed by African American history and culture and how music of the past connects with that of the present, just like the layers of a quilt.
