Bullock Texas State History Museum presents High Noon Talk: Race and the Houston Police Department 1930-1990
High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through a casual lunch-time lecture. At this event, guests can discover the history behind one of Texas' biggest police departments.
Dr. Dwight Watson will talk about his book, Race and the Houston Police Department, 1930–1990: A Change Did Come. Watson traces how the Houston Police Department reacted to social, political, and institutional change — and specifically, how it responded to and in turn influenced racial change.
