“This exhibit will bring the story of segregated high school football in Texas to life for our patrons. Players from this segregated league went on to help break the color barrier in professional sports and many have inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame. Recollections from the teams, individual players, coaches, and fans who participated in this era of Texas history paired with personal belongings and trophies will immerse viewers into the tribulations and triumphs of these brave athletes. Thursday Night Lights does more than just tell the story of the Prairie View Interscholastic League. It connects visitors to the personal side of this important time in the story of Texas.”
