Holocaust Museum Houston presents "Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare" opening day
Holocaust Museum Houston will host the multi-sensory exhibition, "Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare," highlighting issues of persecution, loss of civil liberties and the dangers of propaganda.
The exhibition explores the intersection of politics, art, economics, and the social dynamics that impacted the American First Amendment rights of speech, religion, and assembly, during Hollywood’s Red Scare. Through personal narratives of those who were blacklisted, members of House Un-American Activities Committee or HUAC, and film executives, "Blacklist" examines the shifting definition of what it meant and means to be a patriotic American.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until February 20, 2022.
