Until Education is Unaware of Race
“’Until Education is Unaware of Race’: The Path Toward Integration at Texas State University” is the title of a photo exhibit that will open on January 20, 2015, in Brazos Hall. The exhibit is the product of a graduate class taught by Dr. Lynn Denton, director of the university’s Public History program. Students in the class researched, wrote, designed, produced, and mounted the exhibit. The collaboration between the Center and the Public History program is part of their contribution to the 2014-2015 Common Experience theme, “Exploring Democracy’s Promise: From Segregation to Integration.”

Lone Star Unionism and Dissent
April 5, 2014
Presented by Texas State’s Center for the Study of the Southwest and The Wittliff Collections, and funded in part by a grant from the Summerlee Foundation, this symposium explored the diversity of that opposition and challenged the myth of a monolithic pro-Confederate Texas. Hosted at The Wittliff Collections in Alkek Library on the campus of Texas State University, the symposium consisted of two morning sessions and one afternoon session of three presentations each, followed by a keynote address and a Q&A period.
