Exhibit depicts legacy of Austin’s HBCU

Wednesday, April 21, 2021 by Tai Moses

A “digital story map” exhibit at Oakwood Cemetery Chapel portrays the legacy of Huston-Tillotson University, from those who planted the seeds of its beginnings to those who “carefully tended and spent their life’s energy on managing, improving, and building upon” it to “those that continue to pass the torch onward in the elevation of its mission.” The exhibit, called “To Elevate,” includes video, photos, digital maps and other multimedia content, and will run through July.
