Immigrants of African descent came to Texas first as free blacks seeking opportunity under the Spanish and Mexican governments, then as enslaved people from the deep South; then after the Civil War, a new wave of immigration began. Here, Alwyn Barr considers each era, giving readers a clear sense of the challenges that faced African Texans and the social and cultural contributions they have made to the Lone Star State.
