It's a national touring exhibit, covering 400 years of the African-American experience in America. And it's all told on quilts.

Now you have a chance to see it in Sacramento.

You may be thinking, quilts? Really? Well, hold on, these aren't your grandmothers quilt.

The exhibit, titled "And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversation," is a fascinating chronicle of the history of being black in the United States, dating back to the 1600's.

The California Museum in Sacramento hosts the display until May 27, 2018.

According to Amanda Meeker, Exhibits and Programs Director at the California Museum, the anticipation for the display was big.

"I knew they were going to be great, but when they arrived, we were so pleased," Meeker said, adding there's so much texture.

Each quilt captures a moment in American history focusing on race relations, civil rights, immigration and gender.

If you're a teacher, a student or a lover of American history, this is a fantastic way to see history woven together.

“We’ve had classes and teachers roll through here every morning," Meeker said. "It’s sometimes hard to keep their attention, but for this exhibit, the kids are really engrossed.”

The quilts were all made by artists from The Women of Color Quilters Network. On May 5th, admission to the exhibit and museum is just $5 or free for all Bank of America cardholders
