      The Kentucky Quilt Project, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1981 and created the first of the state quilt documentation projects. It ultimately inspired the documentation of quilts at thousands of quilt days, generating projects that resulted in extensive research, exhibitions and publications. With the quilt documentation projects spanning from 1980 to the present, over 200,000 quilts have been documented in almost every state and a multitude of other countries. In 2011, thirty years since its founding, The Kentucky Quilt Project has created another "first" - a nine-part documentary series titled "Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics," that takes a fresh look at quilts and spreads the word about the quilt's unique position at the center of a startlingly broad grid of topics, from women’s studies to the contemporary art market. Please visit www.WhyQuiltsMatter.org for more information about the series.

          In 1995, Adina Howard made waves in the world of music with her hit song “Freak Like Me.” Never before had a solo R&B female artist made such a bold and controlling stance sexually through song. Along with becoming one of the highest selling singles and most played music videos on MTV and BET in 1995, Adina Howard’s performance allowed young women of color and future recording artist to express their sexuality without shame. “Adina Howard 20: A Story of Sexual Liberation” shares Adina’s story through her own words as well as the impact that she made during the 1990s and thereafter through the thoughts of fellow entertainers, educators, feminists, family and fans. The film gives an intellectual look into the inside of the highs and lows of the life a platinum selling artist, whose work has made a lasting impact despite the polarizing feelings towards her. Adina speaks on her relationship with Tupac Shakur, the banning of her music video from BET, landing a cameo role in the movie “Waiting to Exhale,” her encounter with legendary vocalist Nancy Wilson, working with Hollywood giants Jackie Chan and Jamie Foxx and the sudden halt to her stardom due to her comments about record exec Sylvia Rhone.
