Get the Latest eBook Celebrating African Americans in Texas History

There are many groups that were often overlooked in the chronicles of history. African Americans in Texas are one such group; they were subjected to slavery, segregation, and discrimination during this state's long history. Despite all of this adversity, they made significant contributions to the growth and development of Texas.

African Americans influenced Texas economically, politically, culturally, and socially. Living and working with other ethnic groups, they helped create the unique culture of Texas.

Historians have not always acknowledged the role that African Americans played in the Lone Star State. This is no longer the case. That is why today, the TSHA is offering this new eBook, Struggle and Success for free.
