The John L. Warfield Center launches the Texas Black Sports History Project with Thursday Night Lights, a two-day conference on the athletic and cultural legacy of the Prairie View Interscholastic League (PVIL). Saturday's panels look at PVIL history, athletics, racial integration and the PVIL legacy in Austin. PVIL was the core institution that governed recreational life for African-American students in Texas during the Jim Crow era.
The Warfield Center's Texas Black Sports History Project aims to document and publicize the extraordinary achievements of African-Americans in the history of sports in Texas.
