As stewards of historic Camp Logan - the former World War I training camp which is today’s Memorial Park - Memorial Park Conservancy will commemorate the anniversary of the 1917 Houston Mutiny and Riots with its inaugural interactive audio exhibition on August 23, 2023 - the 106th anniversary of that tragic day in Houston’s history - as part of its Park Conversation Series, in partnership with Buffalo Soldiers National Museum.

A free educational exhibition, Park Conversations: Remembering the 1917 Houston “Mutiny and Riots” will feature six onsite audio experiences situated throughout Memorial Park’s Clay Family Eastern Glades. Participants can connect their personal headphones to listen to words of descendants and community members who have a personal connection to these events and have used their experience to examine and address them over 100 years later.

The opening reception will feature refreshments, live entertainment by saxophonist Kyle Turner, and the first opportunity to experience the month-long interactive audio exhibition, listening to the words of decedents and community members whose reflections humanize this tragedy.

The self-guided interactive audio exhibition will be available for the public to experience through September 26.
