Conversations coming to Dickinson Museum

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Beginning June 14, the Joseph & Susanna Dickinson Hannig Museum will host an oral history project, “Conversations to Create Unity.” The exhibition showcases 15 oral histories from Austinites. According to a press release about the histories, “Their interviews communicate race relations as a shared human experience and present a productive dialog about race in Austin, Texas.” On June 14, the museum will host an opening reception featuring a reading by spoken word artist Ebony Stewart and a panel discussion with Municipal Judge Stan Kerr and Lisa Byrd, executive director of the Austin African American Cultural Heritage District. Laura Gomez-Horton, of the YWCA of Greater Austin, will moderate. The exhibition, which will run through Nov. 15, is funded by Baylor University.
