Gandhi’s Legacy: Houston Perspectives is an exploration of nonviolence and the resonance of Mohandas Gandhi’s philosophy by more than 20 cultural organizations across Houston, Texas.

From October 2014 to January 2015 and beyond each institution is making its own contribution to this story of activism and social change, told though exhibitions, lectures, films, and various programs. It is an initiative of the Menil Collection.

This website introduces the participating organizations and their offerings—an array of activities that explore the many forms that truth, justice, and community action have taken in and around Houston over the last sixty years.

The Menil reserves the right to edit submissions for length and format to achieve consistency of information across the Gandhi’s Legacy website.
