Digitally Exploring the Black and Brown Experience in Texas


ACLS Digital Justice Seed Grants


Social Sciences


This project is a collaborative effort between Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU) and Texas A&M Kingsville (TAMUK), two historically minority serving institutions in Texas. The project focuses on bringing light to black and brown Texans' history through exploring the rich manuscript collections, art work, pictures and historical artifacts housed at each institution's archive. Through exploring and telling the stories behind this rich material and non-material culture our team hopes to highlight this important history. Ultimately, selected items will be digitized and prepared for future use towards our efforts to develop a website.
