Austin History Center presents "Finding Refuge in Austin, 1848 to 1980" opening reception
What does it mean to be a refugee in Austin? How would it feel to leave your homeland and never turn back? What kind of home would you create for you and your family in Austin?
Join the Austin History Center for the opening reception of the exhibit "Finding Refuge in Austin, 1848 to 1980." This historical exhibit explores the experiences of displacement, forced migration, and resettlement among various communities in Austin from 1848 to 1980. By highlighting documents, photographs, and objects from our collections, it reveals the shared challenges and contributions among refugee communities in Austin and Travis County.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 17.
