As part of the Tales of Houston Women collaboration, HHA will present its 7th Houston History Conference, a one-day presentation of panels and roundtable discussions entitled “Houston Women: Agitating, Educating, Advocating.” The full day of programming will include panel discussions by women who are not only experts in the history of Houston’s women and their roles as agitators, educators, and advocates, but who have lived the history and can reflect on their own experiences. Conference goers will engage in direct dialog with the panels as we look at how women can continue to lead the city now and into the future. The conference will also include the Houston Popup Museum, sponsored by the UH Center for Public History. Free to the public, the museum will feature exhibits by area history and humanities-focused organizations. There will also be a vendor area where area organizations can promote their programming.

Keynote by Dr. Ruth Simmons, President of Prairie View A&M University. See our full list of speakers here.

HHA Mission

This proposed programming initiative greatly furthers the mission of the Houston History Alliance, which is to serve as a connection point and catalyst between the general public and Houston’s many history-centric organizations. This collaborative project and our one-day presentation of academic programming will further our mission to leverage the city’s history to inspire civic pride and investment in Houston’s communities and its history organizations.

Conference-goers will know beyond a doubt that Houston’s women deserve to be celebrated and known.
