TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A nationally known quilter is leading a doll-making workshop at the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site, 1515 SE Monroe St., Topeka.
Marla Jackson will work with a dozen participants Saturday. The artist-in-residence's great-grandmother was a slave and Jackson spent time with her as a child.
The Brown site says Jackson's artistic direction was influenced by her family's stories. And the goal of her quilts is to depict scenes and themes that capture the African-American experience.
Participants in the workshop must bring their own sewing machines, but all fabric, filling, accessories, and patterns will be provided.
