    In the clubs, ballrooms, and barbecue joints of neighborhoods such as Third Ward, Frenchtown, Sunnyside, and Double Bayou, Houston’s African American community birthed a vibrant and unique slice of the blues. Houston blues was and is the voice of a working-class community, an ongoing conversation about good times and hard times, smokin’ Saturday nights and Blue Mondays. Showcasing the photographs and stories in the book Down in Houston: Bayou City Blues by Roger Wood and James Fraher, this exhibit presents a detailed portrait of the Houston blues scene, past and present, through interviews and dramatic black-and-white photographs.
