Hidden in Plain View: A Secret Story of Quilts Part detective story, part family history, this fascinating book unravels the secret story of quilts and their role in helping fugitive slaves navigate their way to freedom. The narrative, supplemented with illustrations and colour photographs, explains how the African cultural heritage of design skills and use of symbols in textiles was put to subversive purpose by incorporating secret maps and messages in the quilts that remain a testimony to the resilience and ingenuity of an enslaved people.
