Diasporic Threads: Black Women, Fibre & Textiles is an important new publication from Common Threads Press highlighting Black women's contributions to art and history through fiber-related mediums. The author, Dr. Sharbreon Plummer (Baton Rouge, LA) is an artist, strategist, and storyteller that centers the stories and creativity of Black women. Sharbreon's upbringing in southern Louisiana informs her interest in how culture and ancestral memory influence contemporary art-making. Sharbreon has worked for institutions such as the African American Museum in Philadelphia, Americans for the Arts, and the Embroiderers Guild of America.

This new publication surveys the history of Black women and textiles in North America and spotlights five artists through a series of interviews, paying careful attention to the intersections of race, art, and cultural memory. We are grateful for the support of the Costume & Textile Association for awarding us with the Geoffrey Squire Memorial Bursary, which enabled us to bring this publication to life. Edited by Laura Moseley. Designed and illustrated by Saffa Khan.
