Staff DevelopmentSince 2009, the Houston History Alliance has hosted a one-day city-wide conference focusing on a particular topic within Houston’s rich history. We’ve covered a lot of ground: last year it was “Houston in the 1860s: on the Cusp of War”; 2014 we focused on “Born on the Bayou, Built on the Port”, and in 2013 we gave voice to “Rogues, Rascals and Role Models”. In 2016, the Houston History Alliance invites you to: Houston History Alliance's History Annual Conference — The History of Houston's Musical Soul- This aims to bring together historians, both professional and lay, to dive deep into the different stories of the people and events that built this amazing, sometimes frustrating, but always surprising, city. THE HHA 2016 CONFERENCE PROGRAM INCLUDES: Joe Nick Patoski: Keynote speaker Rick Mitchell, Dr. Robert Morgan of HSPVA and Lizette Cobb on Houston’s Jazz Heritage Maco Faniel, Lance Scott Walker, and Jason Woods (AKA DJ “Flash Gordon Parks”) on Hip Hop and Rap Roger Wood interviewing Dan Workman and Andrew Bradley about the legacy of historic Sugarhill Studios Lunchtime music performances After conference happy hour and performances at Houston’s own Continental Club!
