Throughout American history, black and Latino Americans have often found common ground in the struggle for civil rights. University of Florida associate history professor Paul Ortiz joins us to talk about their achievements – and about efforts to keep them apart in order to hinder their progress. His book is called “An African American and LatinX History of the United States” (Beacon Press). Paul Ortiz speaks at TCU on Feb. 15.
