African-American Quilts With Peopleologie

Times and Locations vary.  Please see below.

We’re headed to the South where people still make quilts today using patterns that their ancestors used during the times of slavery and the Underground Railroad. Along with a slideshow and touchable artifacts, we will make a no-sew cooperative quilt and wall-hanging, by re-purposing fabric scraps, glue, and cardboard. Then, the library will hang it in a public space for all to enjoy! You are welcome to bring your own fabric scraps and fabric scissors. Online registration. If full please email to be put on the wait list.

For all adults including 55+

Exploring Ancient and New World Slavery Systems

Little House Activity Center800 Middle Ave., Menlo Park

Distinguished Lecture Series

Join Sue Bessmer for another fascinating look at the ancient world.  This lecture compares slavery in the ancient world with slavery in the American South.  Structurally, ancient slavery and American slavery were quite different, largely because the latter shared the state with capitalism and the former did not.  For this reason, masters could employ free people to perform complex, managerial or merely authoritative tasks, while keeping the slaves in menial jobs.  Learn more about this fascinating topic.

Free for members / $5.00 for non-members

Speaker:  Sue Bessmer, Ph.D

Please RSVP at 650-326-2025 or house
