Justice is constructed of motifs inspired by a few lines in Sue Monk Kidd’s The Invention of Wings, a novel based on the lives of abolitionist sisters Angelina and Sarah Grimke and an enslaved woman, called Hetty (or Handful). “I made a new quilt from scratch,” the enslaved woman recalls, “red squares and black triangles, me and mauma’s favorite, the blackbirds flying away.” We must continue to protect liberty and justice by participating in our government or these values will will fade from society.
