Teachers State Association of Texas
1191 Navasota St
The Teachers State Association of Texas, previously named the Colored Teachers State Association, served African American teachers from 1952 until 1966. This location is significant not only for the group’s central role in desegregating Texas public schools, but also winning equal rights and wages for the state’s African-American teachers. Evermore, this building was designed by John S. Chase– the state’s first African-American architect.
The building was recently purchased by UT to be the new Community Engagement Center of the University’s Division for Diversity and Community Engagement. It’s currently undergoing renovations.
