In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, the University Branch Library will host a special presentation “The Under-Told History of Hispanic Texans” on Saturday, September 23, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm, in Meeting Room 1 of the library. 

Fort Bend Museum site director Ana Alicia Acosta will talk about the contributions of Hispanic Texans from the beginning of Texas colonization. From the Tejano to the Chicano, learn about the individuals who garnered national attention, fought for social change, and became history-makers in Fort Bend County.

Acosta has been an active member of the American Alliance of Museums and the Fort Bend County Historical Commission, serving as the Markers & Research chairperson for the past three years. She is currently working on completing her master’s degree in Archival Studies and Digital Imaging from the University of North Texas.

The program is free and open to the public.
