Join Duke Houston for a guided tour of The Kinsey African American Art & History Collection, featured at the Holocaust Museum Houston. This extraordinary collection is the largest private holding of African American art and artifacts, and the collection celebrates the achievements and contributions of Black Americans from 1595 to present day. Considered one of the most comprehensive surveys of African American history and culture outside the Smithsonian Institution, the exhibition of the same name features the shared treasures amassed by Shirley and Bernard Kinsey during their five decades of marriage. The collection includes masterful paintings and sculpture, photographs, rare books, letters, manuscripts and more that offer a well-rounded look at the African American experience and provide new perspectives on the nation’s history and culture.

The docent-led tour will start at 10:15 AM and will take approximately 40 minutes.

Optional: After the tour

Join us at The Legacy Cafe for pay-your-own way light bites/beverages.
