The collection of 400 oral histories, the creation of a digital repository and website of videotaped interviews, and the writing and editing of a multi-authored book on civil rights movements in Texas. (36 months)

While most research on American race relations has utilized a binary analytical lens, examining either black vs. white or Anglo vs. Mexican, this project collects and interprets four hundred new oral history interviews with members of all three groups, simultaneously. Covering the period since the onset of the civil rights era, the interviews with African American, Mexican American, and white activists located in twelve sites throughout the large, diverse state of Texas will add new depth to the study of black/brown relations across the United States, past and present. The interviews will form the basis of a new, multi-authored book (with the look and feel of a scholarly monograph) that synthesizes and compares the black and brown freedom struggles in Texas from 1954 to the mid-1970s. Along the way, the project will also develop a free digital humanities website displaying video interview clips, each with its own metadata to allow for easy searching across the entire collection.
