Hard to believe the first image of the AIDS quilt was 32 years ago......

The AIDS Memorial Quilt is getting a new home and returning to the place where it was created.

The famed quilt is moving from Atlanta back to San Francisco, where it will take up permanent residence.

Members of the NAMES Project Foundation announced the news on Wednesday along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia) and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-California).
As part of the transition, the project said it has agreed to jointly gift care and stewardship of the quilt's archives to the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, making this collection available through the world's largest public library.
