As always, Linda Lee arrived with the cavalry. She brought with her our promotional quilt (made by her and Anayda in our last visit to Indian Town)and a team of determined youth to carry the banner.
Attendance at the parade was very good despite the chilly temperature, and we were happy to show our work to all of South Apopka.
A Martin Luther King day parade was a very suiting forum to promote our project. The quilt represents lives sometimes lost due to inequality, racism, and prejudice. The people being memorialized in this quilt represent several generations of farmworkers, some who worked the fields even before the civil rights movement and who struggled to have a voice, and others who faced our contemporary brands of discrimnation, environmental racism, and classism.
The dream lives on.
