One of America's most notable female artists, Faith Ringgold is an accomplished painter, printmaker, creator of soft sculpture, and art quilter. Also an activist, author, and academician, she has never abandoned her goal of searching for human dignity and empowerment for fellow African Americans while tirelessly fighting discrimination. With a vibrant palette and a hushed, dreamlike aura, the art quilts reproduced here bear witness to the courage of fugitive slaves and the beauty of the landscape through which they traveled.
