The Texas Observer is excited to present Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Annette Gordon-Reed at our first in-person event of the year. Gordon-Reed will discuss her book On Juneteenth, a powerful exploration of Texas history and the way it is taught, from the perspective of a Harvard scholar who was educated in Texas public schools. She will be in conversation with Kathleen McElroy, professor of journalism at the School of Journalism at the Moody College of Communications, University of Texas at Austin.
The Texas Observer will also honor McElroy with a special MOLLY First Amendment Prize for her achievements in journalism education and commitment to academic freedom.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Texas Observer. Sponsorship information is available here.
