"clevedon" Discussed on The Kitchen Sisters Present
"In nineteen eighty five in the castro just the castro neighborhood. Ten blocks a thousand people had died. Almost everyone was caring for someone. Mike smith co founder of the names project foundation at the smithsonian folklife festival two thousand twelve cleve jones who organizes march every year for george mosconi and harvey milk was fed up with people not being public staying in the shadows with so much stigma and phobia and so he asked people who are going to march in the candlelight march to make a simple sign with the name of someone they knew that was just so struck by that that number one thousand and i remember standing at the corner of castro and market beautiful victorian homes and cafes restaurants and clubs music and smell food and coffee and hear laughter. And no idea that you're standing at the epicenter of really horrendous tragedy but at that time most rapidly spreading. I just got so frustrated by the lack of evidence. I thought to myself you know if we could knock down these buildings if this mad where the thousand corpses rotting in the sun. Then people would look at it and if they were human beings they would be compelled to respond but there was no response. Reagan was president and he wouldn't even talk about that night. i had harvey milk old bullhorn. Stacks poster board. Ni- asked everybody to write the name of someone they knew who had been killed by the new disease. But i people were ashamed to do. It finally began writing their first and last names. We carry these placards to san francisco city hall down to you and plaza. We couldn't ladders in the shrubbery nearby. Climbed up the front grey stone facade of this building and taped the dame's the wall there were thousands of people gentle rain. People reading these names. On this patchwork of placards up on that wall. And i thought to myself it. Looks like some kind of quilt. I thought of my grandma. My grandma back in peerage indiana and the cloak state may warm and comforting middle american traditional family values. And i thought this is simple. We should take the thought of a quilt kind of summed. Up everything that was wrong in how the country was responding. When you hear the word quilt you. Think of your grandmother taking care of you when you're sick. That was so far from the way our culture and our society was responding to people with aids. Who were being left to die. In hospital corridors. Who were being written off by their families and thrown out of their apartments. Cleveland had come to me and explain this idea for quilt. And i did think it was a little bit crazy but i said i would help. We put up some signs around the castro that said volunteers needed come to a meeting and gert showed up with some friends and two panels that she'd already made what maybe come into. My friends were dying. And i was losing my mind and i needed something to do. I always made presents for my friends. So it was another way of kind of making present for the mike smith brand meeting and there were six people that showed up clevedon. We go to the first meeting because he said he knew it was going to be a failure. Wrote my address on mine. I two panels. 'cause i thought you know these queens. Nancy thought we we were out of our mind when nobody's gonna do that but are you crazy. Just tell you that longtime time ago. Nineteen eighty-seven we've jones comes to my home. Want to take some pictures to announce the names project speaker of the house. Nancy pelosi at the library of congress november twentieth. Two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred. Now i am just newly elected a member of congress and i say to clip cleave a quilt. Nobody does i. I said i had five children. I went to school in a convent harassed. So i know darn i don't so so i don't sell mother five sewing machine and all of that knowledge. Nobody says so. I'd say cleave. I just don't know about this project can't with me do something else. And he said no. This is it. We're sticking with this day. These round paper packages would arrive in our workshop in twenty three sixty two market street and we would open them up and over the first one that came in for a baby that died of aids in had her stuffed animals. I remember when they said steady better. Come look at this. That was the first panel that came in with the ashes of the person who is being numbered. These are the very first ones. They used to be a lot thinner. They're kind of like your pajamas that you don't want to throw away your favorite ones. That don't fold very well and they're always kind of mess up to the shelf. And that's what i call the old soldiers. They're just beaten up a bit. We're looking here at the marvin feldman which was the very first panel ever made. That was close friend. First panels were done on sheets. That were done with spray. Paint the first panels. That i made were really ugly. I didn't know how to so. I made the first one from my dear marvin bourbon feldman when i was done with that was kind of horrified because marvin was very picky and he would have won something to be in the museum of modern art or at least barney's front window. Marvin feldman was one of the great loves my life at jobs selling time life books over the telephone. It was just the best friend you could hope foreign as dying home to providence. And i went back him and his father had served in world war two and liberated one of the death camps. Everything about martin was wrapped up in. The fact is a very young child. He understood that he was a homosexual. In part of two categories that had been subjected to genocide fear it could be repeated by on artistic attempts to communicate that spray painted pink triangles symbol attached to homosexuals in the death camps. They had some of them overlap in some blue triangles to form stars. It gave it every year. that cleveland. But his mother approves soon as i heard about the names project called up to cleave in san francisco and totally my very much like to get involved. And how could i help. Invest kate and he said we need to couple panels. That are spectacular. Can you help us. I said yeah. And i had chosen the rachi and lock hudson brock hudson especially because he had so much to do with media exposure. Getting people aware of what had happened with aids and actually liberace because there was a lot of denial steelers about that and i thought it was important. He's still be commemorated. Despite the denial. I wrote back on the back of liberace's now heaven has more sparkle. Some of the quilts were angry. Some of the thoughts assailed reagan. Roy cohn evil bashes plaza case. That is part of the whole which highs against homosexuals seventy who died of aids subject. Angels in america young men raided a panel for him and it said poli coward job. I was angry. I wanted people to know that. I love this person and that they had died a horrible death. Nobody seemed to care cleve. Jones hundred to into washington was really activist move. We were pissed and we're going to throw are dead down in front of the white house. Panels are made three foot by six foot. That's the size of a grade. They've says.
