How did slavery evolve in Mexico, Texas, and the U.S. in the early 1800s? In honor of Black History Month, "The Alamo Addresses: Slavery in Texas, Mexico, and the U.S. from 1820 - 1846 – An Interactive Discussion,”will inform participants about how slavery factored into the time period before and after the Texas Revolution.
Carey Latimore, Ph.D., associate professor of history at Trinity University and author of the Alamo’s report on Civil Rights in San Antonio: WWII to 1960s, will discuss how slavery was changing in Mexico, Texas, and the U.S during the early 19th century. Hosted by Texas Representative Barbara Gervin-Hawkins, this event will feature an interactive Q&A session with virtual participants in real-time. News 4 SA & FOX 29 reporter Robyn Oguinye will serve as the moderator for the Q&A session.
"The impact of slavery continues to leave its mark on our nation," Carey Latimore said. "I am honored to have this opportunity to engage in this most important topic at the Alamo. There is so much more to discuss than I can possibly fit into a single event. Knowing that, we will focus on how Texas fits into the broader context of slavery's evolution in the region during this period."
This event will be a free virtual, online-only event via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. CST on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Spots for live participants will be limited, so book your spot today. Viewers will be able to submit questions directly to Latimore during the Q&A portion of the program. Free tickets can be reserved on theAlamo.org. The full presentation will be available for viewing on the Official Alamo YouTube page following the event.
