Lunch & Learn: Using Quilts to Interpreting Tennessee's African American Quilts

Tiffany Momon, a Research Professor at the MTSU Center for Historic Preservation, will give a presentation on interpreting Tennessee’s African American quilts.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Between the Layers: Art and Story in Tennessee Quilts, Tiffany Momon, will give a presentation on the artist behind the creation of a double wedding ring quilt on view in the exhibit. The quilt was created by Harriet Meneese Falls, a formerly enslaved African American woman living in Robertson County, Tennessee, who worked as a nanny when she created the quilt for Maxine Elliot, a child in her care. This presentation will delve deeper into Harriet’s life, revealing the story between the layers of her work of art.

The Tennessee State Museum’s Lunch & Learn series is a chance for participants to eat a brown bag lunch while learning about Tennessee history. Presentations begin at noon and last about 30 minutes. All programs are FREE to the public. For those unable to attend the Lunch and Learn, the event will be Livestreamed on the Tennessee State Museum’s Facebook Page.
