Vodcasts on Northeast Texas

James Dickson

Honors Scholar James Dickson on Tom Seabourne:

This presentation explores how NTCC’s Tom Seabourne has functioned as a “voice in the wilderness” for Texans of the late-twentieth, and early-twenty-first centuries. During an era when spotlight sports correlate with rising obesity, Seabourne’s message is doubly urgent.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M09l9QxML5c

Harold Nix was a remarkable, powerful Daingerfield lawyer, who ended up owning the county’s more remarkable courthouse. But who was he? Thompson supplies perhaps the best scholarly account of Nix to date. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iw2pej5QWiE&t=70s
