The Journey of the Spirit exhibition is the first
comprehensive survey of the work of Gwendolyn Magee, a Jackson,
Mississippi-based artist. The Haggerty exhibit features 12
of Magee's quilts, depicting images of the hymn “Lift Every
Voice and Sing.” They represent Magee's vision of the African
American experience of slavery, civil rights and racism, and
reflect a sense of strength of spirit that brings individuals
and communities through great hardship.
