Museum After Dark: Football and Integration

March 4, 2015

Please note: Due to inclement weather this event has been moved to Wednesday, March 4th.

The year 1964 was momentous for civil rights as Congress passed the Twenty-fourth Amendment and Texas's own Lyndon B. Johnson unveiled his plan for the Great Society. That same year, the Plano school district integrated, setting an example for the state and nation. The tightknit community banded together through a language fluent to everyone -- football. The Wildcats had few winning seasons and no state titles at that time, but with hard work and a trailblazing spirit, coaches Tom Gray and John Clark led the integrated team all the way to state championship victory in 1965. The Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation, Inc. presents the inspiring story of the Wildcat fight for the title that made Plano a better place to live.

Join us for this captivating lecture with Jeffrey Campbell, Amy Crawford, and Kirby Stokes and stay for a book signing with the authors of Football and Integration in Plano, Texas.

Tickets are $15.00 per person.  Ticket price includes wine, soft drinks, and light refreshments.
