High Noon Talk: Texas Activism
May 7, 2020 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Discover how organizers helped shape Texas politics.
High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through a casual lunch-time lecture.
Join author and historian Max Krochmal for a livestream talk as he reveals the often-overlooked foundations and liberal traditions of one of our nation’s most conservative states. Krochmal's research shines a light on the activists who, by crossing racial lines and building coalitions, democratized their cities and state from the 30s through the 60s.
Program is FREE to the public and will be available post-livestream on the Bullock Museum YouTube channel.
