  • The Houston Chronicle 4747 Southwest Freeway Houston, TX, 77027 United States (map)

The Houston Chronicle Investigates -- Three authors discuss Texas race relations and race-related violence, both past and present.

What's the legacy of white supremacy? In his book Tomlinson Hill, Houston Chronicle business columnist Chris Tomlinson describes his slave-holding family's cotton planation and traces slavery's echoes through the descendants of the people, both white and black, who lived there. And in this year's Ten Dollars to Hate: The Texas Man Who Fought the Klan, Patricia Bernstein explores the history of racial violence, the KKK and lynchings. With social activist Larry Payne, they'll discuss Texas race relations and race-related violence, both past and present. The last in a series of Summer events co-sponsored by Houston Public Libraries and the Houston Chronicle.
