Stitching Stolen Lives: Amplifying Voices, Empowering Youth & Building Empathy Through Quilts by Sara Trail and Teresa Duryea Wong is an in-depth look at the mission and work of the Social Justice Sewing Academy Remembrance Project. Together, we remember the lives lost due to racial injustices, with an in-depth sharing of their story.
The Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA) compiled extraordinary portrait art quilts that memorialize the individuals and say their names, over and over. SJSA also works with young adults and teens to help find their voice through the art of fabric and quilting, shown through student gallery photography. By working with SJSA, students learn how to cut fabric and make quilt blocks, and along the way, find the strength to express the systemic problems that plague their everyday life through their artwork. This book shares stories and insight into the lives lost and the long overlooked, heartrending truths shared by teens and young adults.
On November 6th from 12pm - 1:30 pm Pacific, Verb will host an exhibit and book signing in person at the shop.
The exhibit will consist of 5 beautifully quilted banners memorializing individuals who have been killed due to social injustice. The author Sara Trail will be available to sign books during this time.
