King-Hammond suggested we all do, and that we have to learn how to see history better; what looks like a jumbled mess on a woman's vanity, for example, is itself a worldview that must be considered. The quilt is also a map—of self, emotion, relationships, heritage—and we must learn to see these soft atlases. Branch reminded us that the victors think they own history and may dominate the narratives, but eventually history catches up to the present, and the stories emerge, regardless of the decades, and even centuries, of muzzling. Whether it feels impossible, the part where more complicated histories are so slow to surface, or hopeful because eventually it gets there, is a matter of perspective. The night was an excellent reminder to all that we need to learn to see, and practice seeing differently, if we are to imagine different futures for ourselves and each other.
