The Houston Museum of African American Culture seeks to promote the African American culture, especially through art. The museum, which was earlier known as the Houston African American Museum, has on a display a multitude of art works created by members of the community that depict various aspects of the culture and life.
It has been known to organise several educational programs that aim at raising awareness about the issues surrounding the black community and touch on topics such as racism, white supremacy and the methods of combatting the same. Movie screenings, guest lectures and presentations are part of this initiative; the HMAAC Movies at Sunset is a popular program. The museum store, known as The Culture Shoppe, sells art works created by black and brown artists along with different souvenirs.
