NETTIE YOUNG, 92, the last surviving original member of the Gee's Bend quilting bee, speaks about how the Civil Rights Movement was wrapped in the fabric of these quilts. "The Freedom Quilting Bee" was born in 1966, during the last years of the Civil Rights Movement. "Y'all don't know where I came from, and I want people to know where I came from," she said. "I enjoyed it - I really did. I thank God from what I've come through. If y'all don't know what 'Blessed' is, this is Blessed."
