Summary
This work is about the other Texas, not the state known for its cowboy conservatism, but a mid-20th century hotbed of community organising, liberal politics and civil rights activism. Beginning in the 1930s, Max Krochmal tells the story of the struggle for democracy in Texas, when African American, Mexican American and white labour and community activists came together to empower the state's marginalised minorities
