Forever Free & Perpetually Honored

From the Texas State Convention of 1868 to the entrenchment of Jim Crow by 1898, there were 52 African Americans who served in Texas state government. Larry Thomas, an independent-thinking Austin resident, set out to learn about them, and eventually dedicated himself to creating a monument in dedication to their service and their memory. Finally on March 30, 2010, a cenotaph was unveiled in a public ceremony at the Texas State Cemetery that was recorded by KLRU-TV. The 2 1/2 hour event has been condensed into six parts that span just over an hour.
