High Noon Talk: A Single Star and Bloody Knuckles
A new look at the contentious history of Texas politics.
Join author Bill Minutaglio for a talk on his book, A Single Star and Bloody Knuckles, which begins in 1870 with the birth of Texas’s modern political framework, and chronicles Texas political life against the backdrop of industry, the economy, and race relations. Shaped by dangerous and often violent events, this contemporary history highlights the determined men and women who fought for their particular visions of Texas and helped define the state as a potent force in national affairs. This program is presented in conjunction with the Museum’s current exhibition, Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow.
High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through a casual lunch-time lecture.
Program is FREE to the public.
