The women histories and stories are told in their own voices, words and gestures.Ms. Stewart shares how they developed other interests, professions and created binding camaraderies. . "Ms. Stewart desire is to air these women's stories like precious quilts brought out in the light of day...Hers is a nearly single voice in this areas of historical artistry." - Beverely Fields Burnette, President of North Carolina Association of Black Storytellers.
