Curated by Tierney L. Malone, "The Sankofa Project" is a multi-year examination of the historical events leading up to the current moment of social unrest and racial reckoning. Beginning with the people and stories that make up the communities of Houston, this project aims to bring light to the events that have been censored or ignored in historical narratives in order to reinforce the racial oppression of Black Americans.

The Main Street Windows at Lawndale Art Center will feature work by musician, composer, and artist Jason Moran. According to Moran, "Barline Hopkins Deathbed is a tribute to legendary blues guitarist Lightnin’ Hopkins. His voice cut the air, and his guitar solos were a balm that healed souls. He rattled eardrums with his piercing voice, roused audiences to their feet to shake it off, made his guitar sound like a howling street dog, or slow-dragged a blues so slow it became a lullaby. Hopkins was a sound griot, documenting the world around him through his penetrating music."

The exhibition will remain on display through August 13.
