Barbara Jordan Exhibit at the Texas Capitol

February 15 - February 22

To highlight the works of one of the most impactful African-American female leaders in our history, the Barbara Jordan Freedom Foundation will display an interactive exhibit of Barbara Jordan’s life at the Texas Capitol. From Saturday, February 15 to Saturday, February 22, the exhibit will stand on the ground floor of the Texas Capitol Rotunda North Central Gallery. As always, the exhibit is free and open to the public.
The audio and visual tribute is designed to highlight the significant impact Barbara Jordan made on civil rights legislation, social justice, female empowerment, and education. The displays are created from the archive housed at Texas Southern University, Barbara Jordan’s alma mater, with contributions from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, where she was a professor for 17 years.
In addition to Black History Month, February also features Barbara Jordan Freedom Week, as designated by the 82nd Texas Legislature. What better way to celebrate her life than revisiting her most significant achievements in history? The Barbara Jordan Freedom Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded to continue Barbara Jordan’s fight against injustice, with funding from the Tocker Family Foundation.
