Established in 2014 as a ministry of St. Paul’s, projectCURATE continues to respond to God’s desire for a more humane world. Working with church, academic, and community partners, projectCURATE supports robust engagement on issues related to race, equity, and social justice.

This fall, you’re invited to a new monthly speaker series called “A People’s History of Houston.” Join us as we engage with some of the city’s most stalwart elders, disrupters, and thought-leaders in an effort to unearth and reclaim Houston's rich history of social activism. Together, we will get to the heart of the ethical and political commitments of our city’s social justice movements.

The second lecture in this series will be Thursday, September 26, at 6:30 pm at MFAH. Michelle Barnes and Deloyd Parker will speak on “Black Freedom Struggles.”

Future lectures in the series:

Oct 24 @ 6:30pm at MFAH by Pancho Argüelles. Topic: Latinx Movements

Nov 14 @ 6:30pm at the Jung Center by Eesha Pandit. Topic: South Asian Feminist Organizing
