Tejano Civil Rights Museum Opens

CORPUS CHRISTI - A first of its kind museum opened Sunday at Heritage Park.

The Tejano Civil Rights Museum, located inside the Grand-Grossman House, gives the community an opportunity to look back at Hispanic history.

Corpus Christi is actually the birthplace of the Hispanic civil rights movement back in 1929.

The President of LULAC Council No. 1, Dr. Nick Adame says this museum will preserve the Tejano and Mexican American culture of South Texas. "It will keep our culture alive by introducing it back into the community. This will be here for the next generations," says Dr. Adame.

LULAC Council No. 1 and students from Texas A&M University-Kingsville headed the project.
