They will present a few of the compelling stories included in the book and why those stories of the first black students at UT Austin remain relevant today.

As We Saw It:  A Panel Discussion
Dr. Richard Reddick will moderate a discussion that will highlight the perspectives from African American, Latino/a American and Asian American students who attended UT before 1970. The panel will focus on common experiences of students of color as well as the ways in which groups of students were treated differently.
