A Piece of Home

Video by: Melissa Edoh (2010)
Manufactured in Europe for West African markets since the 19th century, wax-print cloth has since become a key element of the West African cultural heritage. "A Piece of Home" offers a glimpse into this fabric and the meanings it holds across generations for four West African women now living in the United States.
