Deep in Alabama’s Black Belt, the village of Gee’s Bend is almost an island, cut off by a loop in the Alabama River. Once enslaved plantation workers, then sharecroppers, the people of the Bend remained largely unnoticed by mainstream history. But the women of Gee’s Bend have held on to their creative traditions, passed down from mother to daughter: with spine-tingling gospel singing,

and a unique style of bold and improvised quilting. Made from old clothes out of necessity for generations, used for insulation and burned to keep off mosquitoes, the quilts brought Gee’s Bend fame after they were “discovered” by an art collector in the 1990s and shown in major museums in Houston and New York.
