One of the current exhibits at the Museum of Fine Arts is a comprehensive pictorial record of important sites where black troops fought. It's truly one of the best installation in town.
If you're a collector of African American Art or even a Civil War buff don't miss this Houston happening.
More than 180,000 African American soldiers—both freed slaves and free men from the North—fought in 175 regiments, accounting for a tenth of all Union troops. Yet few memorials or historical plaques mark their contributions. This exhibition of works by American photographer William Earle Williams celebrate these unsung heroes of the Civil War.These works are culled from from a larger series, which is published in a book available in the mfah´s Hirsh Library. Want to know more about this great exhibit on view through September 14, 2008 at the Caroline Wiess Law Building? Visit the MFAH website.
