About the Film

“The Quilt: A Living History of African American Music” stars actresses Cynthia Freeman Gibbs and Lauren Anya Jwahir Hunter with an ensemble cast of musicians (many from San Antonio!). This educational documentary explores the music genres born and formed by African American history and culture and how the music of the past connects with that of the present, just like the layers of a quilt.

General Event Details

The exact check-in and times are in the Agenda section.

At the San Antonio premiere of “The Quilt”, enjoy bites and sangria by Carmens de la Calle, a custom quilt by the African American Quilt Circle of San Antonio, and a Q&A with the cast and crew. The event is also sponsored in part by H-E-B and partner Carver Community Cultural Center.

Please Note: Food & drinks are not allowed in the theater, only in the lobby.

Waitlist & Walk-ins Policies

Once ticket registration fills up, all others will be subject to joining a waitlist. MBAW will check in with ticket holders multiple times leading up to the event to see if they are still coming, and any cancellations will open registration to the waitlisted.

Because it is a free event, MBAW will open seating to anyone still on the waitlist (and any walk-ins) at 1:30 PM, 30 minutes before the movie begins. Seating is unassigned but VIP spots may be roped off.
