Faith Ringgold is an American artist and author who became famous for innovative quilted narrations that communicate her beliefs.

In the 1980s Ringgold began working on "story quilts", which became some of her most renowned works. She painted these quilts with narrative images and original stories set in the context of African American history.

In honor of Black History Month, you will be creating your own "story quilt" by using paint, colored pencils, fabric and more to create an image that tells a story about your life.
