Quilts in KCK project tell a story of history, pride

“If Da Dirt Could Talk,” a collaboration between pre-eminent Kansas City quilt-maker Nedra Bonds and Kentucky-based playwright, quilt artist, and performer Nancy Dawson, looks at heroes and history in Wyandotte County and the community of Quindaro, once a stop on the Underground Railroad. Quilts by Kansas City schoolchildren, featuring portraits of famous people from Wyandotte County, serve as backdrops for a play by Dawson.

Perusing the work of local writers takes us into Missouri’s meth-cooking world; a Hitchcock film festival murder: a wild plan to revive a small town: the grit of college sports; a prison break and mystery in 1890 London; a Hungarian pianist and a look at love and caste in South Asia.
