Links In Action.....
2017 Links Day at the Capitol
The Nashville Links participating at the 2017 Links Day at the Capitol.
The Nashville Chapter of the Links, Incorporated sponsored two successful voter registration and voter education opportunities at the main campus of Tennessee State University. Please see this issue of how the Nashville Links chapter is helping the community during this election season.
During Women's Month, our Arts Facet co-sponsored “The Art of African American Quilting: Black Women Piecing Together Our Past While Keeping Ourselves in Stitches” quilt exhibit at Vanderbilt's Bishop Johnson Black Cultural Center. As the only African American quilting guild in our area, we were pleased that these Zuri Quilting Guild master quilters were available to us share in the rich artistic enterprise that is Nashville’s Zuri quilters by partnering with us as well in our service work with 8th graders at the KIPP Academy of Nashville. Throughout the month of January 2016, these women introduced girls who had never touched sewing machines and, perhaps, unstitched fabric, stitch their way through hours and evenings of sharing, collaboration and creativity in what was a cherished time of cultural memory and intergenerational bonding. This quilt is their work of art that we held together by the masterful quilting of the Zuri Quilters. This intergenational art project, mentoring and exhibit will forever be memoralized in the installation of this banner that shows that we are linked in friendship and service with the youth in our community.
