“The Abolitionists: Different Eyes Seeing the Same Reality,” on exhibit now at the Houston Museum of African American Culture, probes one of the most powerful and troubling topics of today from the art-world perspective. Coupled with “As Small As A Giant,” the shows at HMAAC explore racial discord and violence sparked by history and current events.
“The Abolitionists” has three major components. A highlight is the series by Ti-Rock Moore, who went public with her multimedia protest works on racism in 2014.

Elizabeth Warren’s political discourse on racial inequality, sampled from her website.
