Episode 57 Apopka Farmworkers Pt 3

Episode 57 Apopka Farmworkers Pt 3

What I am bringing you this week is an unreleased podcast I recorded a few years ago. I meet up with two women who worked as farm-workers in Apopka since they were young children and are now commemorating the lives of central Florida farm-workers in a quilt designed to tell the stories of individual workers and their families.

Originally, this was a part of a larger project that ultimately fell through, but before I abandoned it I recorded these two women who told me their experiences in the fields and the history of the quilt. At the time of the interview the quilts were unfinished, now it is completed and traveling the state as The Lake Apopka Farm-worker MemorialQuilts.

These interviews were rich in life history and I wanted to share them with you. The women I spoke to were Linda Lee who created the quilt and travels around with the quilt and Geraldine Matthew who was involved in organizing community support for the quilt.This podcast will be broken up into 3 parts. 

In Part 3 we hear the story of the inspiration for the memorial quilts and both Geraldine Mathew and Linda Lee give us the poignant stories of the lives of the people memorialized in the quilt.
