Houston experienced tremendous change, growth and upheaval in the 50 years that followed World War I. From the labor movement through the civil rights struggle to the Vietnam era, the 1920s to the 1970s were marked by dramatic social change in our city and nation. The mid-20th century was also a time of unprecedented expansion in Houston’s population and boundaries. This course explores why these five decades were so transformative for Houston and how national social movements played out in our region. It also shares stories of the remarkable people—both famous and forgotten—who shaped our city as we know it today.
