LIFE AND DEATH ON THE BORDER 1910–1920

Museum Exhibit or ProgramTexans had divergent reactions to revolution in Mexico.In the second decade of the 20th century, Texans read headline news of a “great war” in Europe, while at the same time a rebellion closer to home was having a more immediate impact on those living along the borders of Texas and Mexico. Life and Death on the Border 1910-1920 re-examines the events and context that represent some of the worst racial violence in United States history. Through display of rare artifacts, photographic records, court documents, newspapers, family histories, eye witness accounts, and recordings of the música Tejana of the Texas-Mexico border, this poignant exhibition will provide a fresh perspective on a little-known story that shaped the Mexican American civil rights movement and continues to have lasting impact today.
