The Department of Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies, in collaboration with the Mary Couts Burnett Library and the TCU Press, presented Dr. Monica Muñoz Martinez with the TCU Texas Book Award for the best book about Texas in 2019. Her book The Injustice Never Leaves You (Harvard University Press) draws on oral histories to study a riveting and disturbing story of how vigilantes and law enforcement along the Texas border killed Mexican residents with impunity from 1910-1920. Muñoz Martinez is the Stanley J. Bernstein Assistant Professor of American Studies and Ethnic Studies at Brown University.
