Texas Christian University’s research endeavor on African American and Mexican American civil rights movements has received a $200,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, according to a press release.

The Civil Rights in Black and Brown Oral History Project is one of more than 200 humanities projects that received grants from the organization, totaling $36.6 million. Of the $200,000 given to TCU, $100,000 comes from outright funding, while the other half comes from federal matching funds.

The project is a collection of interviews with African Americans, Mexican Americans and white Americans who lived in Texas during the civil rights movements beginning from the Jim Crow era until today.

The research will be put together in a book and an existing online database, which will feature video and audio clips from the interviews. The site is free for public use.

Assistant Professor of History Max Krochmal heads the project, which is a collaborative effort by TCU’s Department of History and Geography, the University of North Texas and the University of Texas at Arlington. UNT’s website, Portal to Texas History, will feature the interview clips as well.
