Join storyteller Meltonia Loretta Young for fanciful stories about secret codes woven in quilts during the 1800s. Young will share the codes that some say may have led slaves to those in the Underground Railroad who aided their escape to freedom. While most quilt scholars and historians consider the code to be lacking any factual basis, it still makes for a great story.
