True Texas History: Uncovering Hidden Stories of Injustice

Colorado and 13th St, AUSTIN Texas
Historians Monica Martinez (The Injustice Never Leaves You), Elaine Hampton and Cynthia Ontiveros (Copper Stain) shed light on little-known stories of the development of Texas. From anti-Mexican violence along the border in the early twentieth century to the horrific effects of environmental injustice on the community surrounding ASARCO in El Paso, they examine why we tell the stories we do about Texas and what we have to learn from the hidden stories that don’t make it into textbooks.
