Houston Museum of African American Culture

A Burning House

Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018 – Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019


(formerly Nawlins) Ti Rock Moore

November 17, 2018 -January 12, 2019

A Burning House takes as its point of departure an historic conversation between colleagues and activists Harry Belafonte and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., during which King expresses his fears: “We have fought hard and long for integration, as I believe we should have, and I know that we will win. But I've come to believe we're integrating into a burning house.”  Passionate, gregarious, and larger-than-life, Ti-Rock Moore delves into her home roots of New Orleans to present a poignant picture of race and white privilege. Her extremely timely message about race resonates far past her hometown, on multiple levels speaking to us as individuals, as communities, as a society and as a country.
