This exhibit looked at the legislation and exhibited photographs during George Thomas “Mickey” Leland’s time in Austin. Former State Representatives who served with Congressman Leland came and shared their memories of him, along with friends, and members of his youth task force. This exhibit was conducted in partnership with the Mickey Leland Museum of African History, Art and Culture, State Representative Jarvis Johnson and the Jesse H. Jones Public Library.
