Event Details

Monica Munoz Martinez, winner of the Autry Public History Award 2017, discusses her book The Injustice Never Leaves You: Anti-Mexican Violence in Texas which tells the little known, yet devastating period of violence in Texas in the early twentieth century. Under the auspices of protecting Anglo-American settlers, Texas Rangers and vigilantes alike wrought havoc upon Mexicans, turning the rural lands of the Lone Star State into a hotbed of police violence and state-sanction racial terror. Lynchings, murders, and beatings were common place. Today, America struggles to memorialize her violent past and imagine a more peaceful future. At a time when conceptions of nationhood, identity, and citizenry are under constant duress, The Injustice Never Leaves You gives valuable insight into a world that was shaped by violence, and into the lives of those who refused to be consumed by it.
