Exposing the Historical Structures of Racism in Houston

TUESDAY, MAY 11, 4:30–6:00 P.M. Zoom invitations will be emailed to subscribers.

May 11: The Historical Promise of Democracy in Education

Houston is admired for being one of the most diverse cities in America, but it is still one of the most segregated. Are Houstonians prepared to make concessions that are important for the improvement of communities of color and to reject the underlying tradition of white supremacy?

Through the lens of Mabel Wesley (1871–1941) and her son Carter Wesley (1892–1969), Amilcar Shabazz will reflect on the fact that Texas was “ground-zero” in the legal work and the debate over Jim Crow and the artificial barriers of race. Prominent white Houstonians have received treatment in the scholarly literature. Learn how the Wesleys made a difference in the history of Houston and how Carter Wesley, as lawyer, writer, editor, and newspaper owner, engaged with the NAACP and Thurgood Marshall over strategies and unintended consequences in the courts and on the ground.
