Founded by Willie Velasquez in 1974, the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project was created to increase minority participation in elections. Amy Rushing, head of special collections at University of Texas at San Antonio, showed items from the collection and explained the impact the organization had on Latinos across the Southwestern U.S.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2020 LCV Cities Tour” in San Antonio, Texas, from January 11-15, 2020, to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Spectrum cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on Book TV on C-SPAN2. close
