We Shall Not Be Moved: Recent Acquisitions from the Gregory Collection  

November 14, 2019 - April 11, 2020
The African American Library at the Gregory School

The African American Library at the Gregory School celebrates ten years of documenting and preserving the tradition, culture, and history of African Americans in the greater Houston area. Since opening in 2009, the archive has grown to over 400 collections that date from pre-civil war to contemporary and include works in a great variety of formats. Photographs, documents, oral histories, and artifacts bring light to history, bridging past and present with explorations of emotions and experience. Each collection provides important documentation for culture and history. This exhibition highlights the collection’s depth and development while it brings together a selection of recent acquisitions that have rarely been shown.
