In this episode of In the Public Interest we explore this year’s theme for Texas State’s Common Experience: “Texas State, From Segregation to Integration.” Our first story talks about Texas State’s history of segregation. Our second story covers the co-chairs of the Common Experience, Dwight Watson, associate history professor, and Joanne Smith, vice president for student affairs. Our last story talks about the first African-American students accepted to Texas State University in 1963.
