NE to focus on Texas activists

After spending a week studying the civil rights movement in an intensive study over the summer, history instructor Tramaine Anderson was inspired to bring what she had learned to TCC.

On Feb. 23, Anderson will teach NE students about the struggle for freedom in the 1960s and the effect youth participants had on the movement.

“I want students and others to know that this movement was organized by young adults, middle school, high school and college students,” she said.

Anderson said she wants students to realize that, while much of the fight for freedom took place in Mississippi and Alabama, Texas had its fair share of activism.

“I hope students will also find that the civil rights movement did not only just take place in far away places like Mississippi, Alabama or Washington, D.C., but there was a movement for freedom and civil rights here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area,” she said.

The speech, We Are Not Afraid, is free and will be 11 a.m.-noon in the NSTU Center Corner.
