A collaboration between Texas Christian University, the University of Texas at Arlington, the University of North Texas, and the University of Texas at Austin, Civil Rights in Black and Brown illuminates Texas’s two, mid-twentieth century Civil Rights movements—that of the region’s African American population and that of its Mexican American population. The project, which has been supported with an NEH collaborative research grant, is collecting the oral histories of civil rights activists at twelve sites scattered throughout the state. In addition to forming the backbone of a multi-author book on the topic, the collection of video interviews is publicly available online, enabling a broader range of research on civil rights in different American populations. In addition, DVD copies of the interviews are being provided to interviewees.
