A Night at HMAAC Featuring the Kinsey Collection

The Houston Museum of African-American Culture were recently hosts to the Kinsey Collection, an exhibit that celebrates the achievements of African-American’s throughout the race’s entire history, and is product of the research from Bernard and Shirley Kinsey.
