June 6 – August 31, 2023Curator Dr. Lindsay Gary Author of The New Red Book and Director of “Who Yo’ People”
Through the lens of The New Red Book A Guide to 50 of Houston’s Black Historical and Cultural Sites, written by Dr. Lindsay Gary, this exhibit showcases the history of Houston through the perspective of place – 50 cultural organizations and sites created and sustained by African Americans. Adding to the rich historical legacy of Houston, this exhibit tells a comprehensive story of Houston’s African Americans who have made significant contributions to the city, from their earliest years to the present.  The title pays tribute to the original 1915 publication The Red Book of Houston A Compendium of Social, Professional, Religious, Education and Industrial Interests of Houston’s Colored Population, recognized by researchers as one of a kind for its detailed description of African American success in the South during a time of social and political upheaval.  Tickets are $5 at the Museum Gallery Gift Shop at 1100 Bagby Street. Walk-in and enjoy!
