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 series will kick off on Thursday, August 22, at 6:30 pm with a lecture at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston by Maco Faniel, MA, local historian and author of Hip Hop in Houston. His topic: Houston’s Social Movements History.
