“Civil Rights in Black and Brown” lecture
November 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
#UNThistory is partnering with UNT Libraries to launch a new “Texas Edges Lecture Series” which will feature innovative and cutting-edge research in Texas and borderlands history. The driving idea behind the series is to bring the most innovative scholars working in the field to UNT to lecture on their work, and meet our graduate students.
Our first speaker will be Dr. Max Krochmal, Associate Professor of History at Texas Christian University and author of Blue Texas: The Making of a Multiracial Democratic Coalition in the Civil Rights Era, which won the Fredrick Jackson Turner Prize from the Organization of American Historians. Working in partnership with our own Prof. Todd Moye, Dr. Krochmal directs the “Civil Rights in Black and Brown Oral History Project ” (https://crbb.tcu.edu/), a statewide initiative that has collected more than 530 new interviews to reconstruct the hidden history of the overlapping African American and Mexican American civil rights movements in Texas.
Dr. Krochmal will give a lecture titled “Civil Rights in Black and Brown: Oral Histories of the Liberation Struggles in Texas.” The lecture will take place from 1-2 p.m. on Thursday, November 29 in Willis Library, Room 250H. See you there!
