LSU AIDS QUILT PROJECT
December 1, 2014
6pm-8pm at the African American Cultural
Honor our past and better our future–be a part of the start of LSU’s very first AIDS awareness and memorial quilt! We’ll provide the supplies, you provide the creativity.
History of the original AIDS Memorial Quilt:
In June of 1987, a small group of strangers gathered in a San Francisco storefront to document the lives they feared history would neglect. Their goal was to create a memorial for those who had died of AIDS, and to thereby help people understand the devastating impact of the disease. This meeting of devoted friends and lovers served as the foundation of the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt.
Today the Quilt is a powerful visual reminder of the AIDS pandemic. More than 48,000 individual 3-by-6-foot memorial panels — most commemorating the life of someone who has died of AIDS — have been sewn together by friends, lovers and family members.
