A new book examines the organizations and movements in the Black and Latino communities often overlooked by history. “Civil Rights in Black and Brown: Histories of Resistance and Struggle in Texas” is based on an oral history collaboration between Texas universities, and brings together more than 500 voices from the Panhandle to the Piney Woods.
History professors Max Krochmal of Texas Christian University and Todd Moye of the University of North Texas led the project. The pair spoke with Texas Standard. Listen to the interview in the audio player above or read the transcript below
