think.kera.org 0

In the early decades of the 20thCentury, Texas law enforcement and vigilantes killed Mexican citizens with little worry of legal consequences. Brown University assistant professor Monica Muñoz Martinez joins us to talk about how the families of these slain Mexicans sought justice for their loved ones – and how that process guarded against the whitewashing of these crimes. Her new book is called “The Injustice Never Leaves You: Anti-Mexican Violence in Texas” (Harvard University Press).
