The San Marcos 10: An Antiwar Protest in Texas

November 2, 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Join us for a discussion with author E.R. Bills about his book, The San Marcos 10: An Antiwar Protest in Texas. On November 13, 1969, ten students at Texas State University were suspended for participating in a peaceful protest against the Vietnam War. Part of a coordinated, nationwide Vietnam Moratorium effort that confounded and infuriated the Nixon White House, the “San Marcos 10” challenged their suspension, taking their case all the way to the United States Supreme Court. Author E.R. Bills offers this fascinating glimpse into the 1960s antiwar movement in Texas, the extraordinary measures to quell it, and the broader social activism in which it participated. Members of the “San Marcos 10” will also be present for a special Q&A session.
