In the last century, leaders in the business and faith communities joined forces to tackle deep divisions in San Antonio. Together, they worked to desegregate downtown and took on an unfair economy rooted in racism.
Their story is a roadmap to our future—a San Antonio where every household has a chance to thrive. In this virtual event, we talked with Trinity University historian Dr. Carey Latimore about how our city’s past holds stories that can inspire us to create a better future.
Dr. Latimore’s presentation references his Alamo paper, “Civil Rights in San Antonio: WWII to Mid-1960s and leads into a live interview with Dr. Patton Dodd, executive director of storytelling and communications at the H. E. Butt Foundation, and direct questions from several attendees.
