Civil Rights in Black & Brown: Histories of Resistance and Struggle in Texas (virtual)
November 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CST
University of North Texas and Texas State Historical Association (TSHA): attend an online talk about civil rights movements and Texas history. Registration cost is $5 for non-TSHA members. Register: https://www.tshaonline.org/events/texas-talks-civil-rights-in-black-and-brown
Dr. Max Krochmal (TCU) and Dr. J. Todd Moye (UNT), editors, discuss Civil Rights in Black and Brown: Histories of Resistance and Struggle in Texas (University of Texas Press, November 2021), which draws upon more than 500 oral history interviews with African American and Mexican American grass-roots activists from every corner of Texas. In this talk, Dr. Krochmal and Dr. Moye, with Moderator Dr. Wes Phelps, discuss the book’s revelation that not one but two civil rights movements flourished in mid-twentieth-century Texas and they did so in intimate conversation with one another.
