About the Author

Hicks is a marketing professional and quilter.  She was so mesmerized after seeing Eva Ungar Grudin's 1990 exhibition, "Stitching Memories: African-American Story Quilts," that she began to teach herself to create her own quilts. "I found my voice that afternoon in the museum," she remembers. Today, Kyra's quilts have been included in more than forty exhibitions in venues such as the American Craft Museum in New York, the Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum in Hartford. She hosts the African American quilting news blog, Black Threads.

First thing I've read about Liberia. It was short, but interesting. Tells the story of Susannah Lewis, the Black Betsy Ross of Liberia who was commissioned to create the new flag of Liberia in 1847. The book introduces you to Susannah, and the six woman she chose to help her design the new flag. Where possible a short history is provided for each woman, telling where she came from in America, and her present history in Liberia.

Flash forward four weeks to April 24, 1847, Liberian Flag Day. All of the businesses were closed so everyone could participate in the National ceremonies. Susannah Lewis made a patriotic speech before presenting the new flag to Governor Joseph Jenkins Roberts. A cry rings out from the audience, and the flag is raised to the top of a thirty foot flagpole.

The story of the flag fills the first 53 percent of the book; the last half provides a pattern for anyone ambitious enough to quilt the flag.
