Blue Texas: Back to the future
a Reflection by

Max Krochmal

Wednesday, October 25th | 12:30 - 2:30 |Flowers Hall 230

Blue Texas is about the other Texas, a mid-twentieth-century hotbed of community organizing, liberal politics, and civil rights activism. At the ballot box and in the streets, Mexican Americans, African Americans and labor activists demanded not only integration but economic justice, labor rights, and real political power for all. And it worked, permanently changing the racial political order in Texas.

In this talk, Max Krochmal goes back to the politics of community organizing in Jim Crow Texas to consider all of our futures in Texas after Trump and after Hurricane Harvey.
