Our quilt piece has four major african americans over the time after the civil war in our government. The background is the flag because it represents that this takes place in the U.S. on the top left corner is Hiram revels. The square underneath each person is what they did, their names, and the years the began or served. On the top right there is Edward Brooke. On the bottom right there is Carol Moseley Braun. And on the bottom left corner their is Barack Obama. In the middle their is the white house representing that they each worked in the white house. The thought bubbles around it represent that at one point they invited and at one point none could come and finally they were welcome again. also the arrows represent the time difference of when they each served in the office.
