Faith Ringgold at the Serpentine gallery

I had known Faith Ringgold’s work as I had had her children’s book ‘Tar Beach’ in my classroom as a London teacher, but Tar Beach was just one of a range of paintings and story quilts that chronicled activist/feminist life and times in the USA since the 1960s. Slavery; equal rights; Freedom marches: you name in, Faith made a quilt of it! she is now (2019) 88 years old and going strong.
