HIGH NOON TALK: TEN DOLLARS TO HATE

September 6, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Hear about the Texans who took a stand against the Klan

Program Details:

Held on the first Wednesday of every month, High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through this casual lunch-time lecture.

Join author Patricia Bernstein for a talk on her book Ten Dollars to Hate: The Texas Man Who Fought the Klan. The book chronicles the actions of brave individuals who stood up during the troubling 1920s in Texas. An era that most people associate with jazz, flappers, bootleg liquor or progressivism,  was also a time of fear and brutality thanks to the second coming of the Ku Klux Klan in Texas.

Support for the Bullock Museum's exhibitions and education programs provided by the Texas State History Museum Foundation.
