About the Exhibit:

The Struggle for Civil Rights in Texas

January 11, 2014 - May 4, 2014

While the struggle for Civil Rights raged across the nation in the 1950s and 60s, leaders were emerging in Texas, seeking equality for African-American, Mexican-American and minority populations.
This project tells the story of civil rights across Texas, with information and visual documentation of major events, organizations, and leaders who have influenced civil rights from the nineteenth century to the present. Topics will include civil rights in education, labor, housing, and welfare.
The Struggle for Civil Rights in Texas is a student exhibit developed by UTSA art and history students studying the preparation of museum exhibits, including the research, visual records and presentation of the finished narrative.
