Book Cover Image
Alwyn Barr and Robert A. Calvert (Editor)


Black leaders in Texas, both men and women, have contributed numerous examples of perseverance and triumph. This volume examines the lives of some of those black Texans who, in the words of Frederick Douglass, led the movement to "devise and carry out measures for their own social advancement, and for the general improvement of their condition." An excellent supplementary textbook.

The late ROBERT CALVERT, one of the compilers of the earlier editions of Texas Vistas, was co-author of the college textbook, A History of Texas.
