501-c-3 organization that
was formed in Houston, Texas, by a group of concerned activists
so that our collective histories could be
saved - as well as be available for educational uses - through the
utilization of a museum or similar venue.
Although we have had to close the museum space, our archives are still available by appointment.
Appointments can be made for access to parts of the archives through Judy by calling 832-722-5785.
Additionally, we do have a few satellite exhibits throughout the city and arrangements can be made for
temporary ones for special functions.
