Picture & Prose
Explore the intersection of art and literature. Begin with a virtual tour of Bisa Butler: Portraits followed by a discussion of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson's The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration.
A bold, epic work, it chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South in search of a better life. It is an exploration of her subjects' journeys and culture – an approach mirrored in the narrative quilts of Bisa Butler which capture the fullness of the individuals and lives portrayed.
