But It's Such A Good Program!

Over at Tea Cozy I posted about the myths surrounding the use of quilts in the Underground Railroad; Farm School has a nice list of resources but being a Jersey Girl my favorites are from Giles R. Wright, Director of the Afro-American History Program, New Jersey Historical Commission; check out this interview and this specific critique.

So, how many quilt programs does your library have during Black History Month? And what do you do to address the critique of the quilt theory?

Edited to add: Monica Edinger's thoughtful views on Appealing Myths.
