Lucy Mingo, NEA National Heritage Fellow





Lucy Mingo Gees Bend Quilter

In this program, Master Quilter Lucy Mingo and her daughter Polly talk to Program Manager Anne Kimzey. This is a rebroadcast of a 2006 interview now relevant because Lucy Mingo with two other Gee's Bend master quilters, Mary Lee Bendolph and Loretta Pettway will be awarded a National Heritage Fellowship this October in Washington DC. The Arts Council is happy to include these wonderful artists in our roster of past Heritage recipients from Alabama.
