“The Injustice Never Leaves You: Anti-Mexican Violence in Texas”: 2018 Gladney Lecture for Justice and Social Change
October 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmfree
Dr. Monica Muñoz Martinez (Brown University) will deliver this year's Rose Gladney Lecture for Justice and Social Change on October 10, 2018 at 6 p.m. in room 205, Gorgas Library. Martinez is an Andrew Carnegie Fellow and cofounder of the nonprofit organization Refusing to Forget. Her book, The Injustice Never Leaves You: Anti-Mexican Violence in Texas, was published in September 2018 by Harvard University Press.
Between 1910 and 1920, vigilantes and law enforcement—including the Texas Rangers—killed Mexican residents of border communities with impunity. Survivors and families struggled to bring perpetrators to justice while facing segregation and intimidation. Martinez's talk reconstructs this untold history—and how a determined community ensured that victims were not forgotten.
