At the Star of the Republic Museum, Enduring Spirit: African Americans in 19th Century Texas focuses on three time periods: the 1820s and early ’30s, when African-Americans were among settlers seeking land grants; the slavery years of the Republic of Texas and the Confederacy; and the post-Civil War era, when blacks met mixed fortunes as sharecroppers, craftsmen, and refugees.
