By Susanne Miller Jones.

Today's renewed interest in our basic rights has become part of popular culture and breaking news, and this colorful new way to approach human rights answers the demand for new perspectives on the issues. From the Mexican border to the #MeToo movement, these images made in fabric are amazing and thought provoking. These 65 quilts created by 47 artists from six countries focus on the history of the battles for human, civil, and political rights, and the continuing developments today. They also celebrate the heroes who fought for rights, as well as the events that have drawn the attention of the news media and the public. Personal stories offer moving reminders and encouragement for future rights successes.
