Whenever civil rights has been covered in history class, or when I’ve seen a documentary or read an article
concerning such, I have always been very aware of what is missing, and it is something that I am interested in
and looking for. Where is the plight of the Woman, Hispanics and African American represented in the civil
rights discussion In Texas History?
Some of us have heard the stories from older relatives about the treatment of Mexican-Americans in Texas in
the 1900s. From what I have been told to me, it was not much different from how African Americans were
treated in Texas. Through my grandparents & parents, I have heard of schools for Mexican children, separate
drinking fountains, having to sit in the “upper” balconies at movies, and not being able to go to restaurants and
other establishments that were designated as “whites only.”
You are going to write a Chapter as if were the author of a government history chapter in a Texas text book. I
have included an outline of what you are going to talk/discuss/ inform students about.
1200 words and 4 resources are required. Each body paragraph would act as a chapter in the ” textbook”. You
can talk subjects such as: court cases, the changing of laws and the higher educational system
