A selection of articles which reflect the cultural diversity of Texas, including articles on African-American, Tejano, German and Native American folklore. Also included is an interview with W.C. Handy, 'the father of the blues.' The articles vary widely from academic to amateur in tone. As usual, the original text has been transcribed verbatim. It reflects the time and place in which it was written, and includes ethnic terms and characterizations which today would be considered extremely offensive.
