About the event
To complement our Black History of Lake Jackson display,(on view Feb. 7th - Mar. 4th), we invite the public to Remembering Resistance, an oral history program dedicated to remembering what racial segregation was like and how our communities resisted racism over time. Come to engage in discourse about the history of segregation, integration, and the fight for racial equality in Lake Jackson and Brazosport. Museum staff will facilitate memory sharing among speakers and audience members.
If you are interested in participating and sharing your story, please call Katelyn Landry at (979) 297-1570 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would rather share your memories anonymously, submit to this Google Form: https://forms.gle/ufkHHrd7PwwnqZuE9
