Get ready for the San Antonio red carpet premiere of the “The Quilt: A Living History of African American Music”. Starring Cynthia Freeman Gibbs and Lauren Anya Jwahir Hunter with an ensemble cast of musicians (many from San Antonio!), this educational documentary 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.
Enjoy bites and sangria by Carmens de la Calle, a custom quilt by the African American Quilt Circle of San Antonio, and a Q&A with the cast and crew. Event is also sponsored in part by H-E-B and partner Carver Community Cultural Center.
