BLMHTX is excited to continue our effort to provide spaces in which to imagine and create Houston communities where black lives matter through our newest initiative: “BLMHTX in Conversation.” Through this initiative, we invite the community to join us in small, intimate environments for engaged conversation, story-sharing, reflection and, most importantly, affirmation and celebration of black life.

Our first round of conversations will be a series of intergenerational dialogues presented in partnership with the African American Library at the Gregory School and the Center for Engaged Leadership and Collaborative Learning on February 20, 2016. During our time together, three elders who have been involved in the historic struggle for black lives in the city of Houston will be paired in conversation with three young activists and artists involved in the current movement for black lives. These dialogues will not only provide us with a sense of how Houston’s rich history of creative activism and economic innovation informs our contemporary moment, but they will also enable us to build cross-generational connections of care, mutual respect and accountability.

We will kick off the afternoon at 12:30 pm with a mini-tour of Freedmen’s Town led by Houston native and History PhD student Maco Faniel. We will then gather for the dialogues at 2:00 pm inside the African American Library at the Gregory School. Join us as we pay homage to our ancestors, gain wisdom from our elders and share perspectives for our collective work ahead.

Seating is limited. Please register at
