This article reminded me of medussa's son's HW

thought this quite was funny
‘Historians Gone Wild.’ ”
but I guess I'm missing something. Why does this remind you of Medussa's son?

My brain is a little fried after a day with both kids at home. But I read the article and what I'm taking away from it is that the quilts and their codes are a myth. It's not based on historical fact. The quilts should be viewed as a work of art, nothing more.

I'm definitely sending a copy of the article to M's Language Arts teacher. It's definitely interesting.

I don't know--the article gives the example of Thomas Jefferson's relationship with Sally Hemmings, his slave. Her descendents always maintained that they were also descended from Jefferson. Historians dismissed their claims, but DNA evidence finally proved they were right.

I think people in our society do tend to dismiss oral histories. But that doesn't mean the quilt code is true. It would be interesting if it was.

hahahaha that darn homework......


That story is so that homework, I'm so an in the box thinker
While the quilt story could have some basis in truth, there's no connection between it and Frederick Douglas. With everything that FD did for real, it would be silly to include it in the memorial.
When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?
