Created in 1995 by 13 African American men in the Washington, D.C., area, this story quilt was designed to help prepare teenagers for manhood. Each artist created a patch addressing issues ranging from unity and knowledge to discipline and perserverance. Once the patches were completed, a team of fiber artists headed by noted doll-maker Francine Haskins assembled the quilt.
