This online speaker panel and listening party will reflect on clips from “The Borderlands” installment of the Points South podcast, where Texas journalist Michelle García investigates the history of the U.S.-Mexico border and protests in the Rio Grande Valley. The presentation will feature panelists from Village in the Valley (ViVA RGV), The Grande Narrative, the Webber Family Preservation Project, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Community History and Archaeology Projects with School (UTRGV CHAPS) and the Museum of South Texas History. It will be hosted in partnership with García and moderated by Pastor Nick Maddox. 

The presentation will be broadcast at facebook.com/MOSTHistory/live. Viewers are encouraged to interact with panelists by posting comments and questions on the live feed. The presentation will also be recorded and posted for public access on the museum’s website at mosthistory.org.

This program is made possible with generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was deeply committed to supporting educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley. This named endowment was created at the museum by her family to honor her memory and to continue her commitment to providing opportunities for education to the community.
