Drapetomania: A Disease Called Freedom
June 20 - October 31, 2008
3100 Cleburne Street, Houston, TX 77004
This show is huge, not only in the variety and sheer number of artworks and artifacts (over 200), but also in that it spans nearly 250 years of African American decorative arts. All the work comes from the Derrick Joshua Beard collection, and exposes the history of slavery and its effects in a very compelling way.
