Join us for a program discussing a few of many enslaved and free black citizens living in the town 200 years ago.

These people contributed to the town in many different ways and their legacy still lasts into our modern town of San Felipe today. This presentation will also cover the complex laws surrounding slavery in Mexican Texas that kept enslavement legal in Texas, but abolished elsewhere in Mexico.

THC (Texas Historical Commission) will be hosting this event at the Nature Center.  Event will begin at 10 a.m. and end by 11 a.m.

This event is free with the purchase of a Daily Entrance pass.
