The Center for the Study of the American West in Canyon has received a major grant from Humanities Texas.

The Center for the Study of the American West, better known as CSAW, is fast becoming one of the nation’s most recognized centers for thought and research into the American West.

The grant of several thousand dollars annually will go toward producing the center’s annual “Forgotten Frontera” community conversation event.

This year’s event will be held this Thursday, Sept. 20, at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, on the campus of West Texas A&M University in Canyon.

The event, in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, will feature a discussion on the Texas legal justice system and its relationship to Mexican American populations in the Texas Panhandle. 

The event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
