The Story of the Surprise Success of the Traveling Preachers of Early Texas Premieres on Friday, February 23, at 7:00 pm

A Program free and open to the Public At the Whatley Center for the Performing Arts at NTCC

For twelve years, the scholars of Honors Northeast have premiered previously unfilmed stories of Texas’s past. But this year, Honors Northeast and the NTCC Webb Society have teamed with Herald and Co. Motion Pictures to present a story yet to be told. The film follows the research of the Reverend Dan Hoke of Franklin County and NTCC Presidential Scholar Luke McCraw. It spotlights a gap in early Texas history. Most students know that Mexican authorities and impresario Stephen F. Austin advertised early Texas as a Roman Catholic province. What they need to know is the extent to which Austin worked to create a secular state. No one of influence encouraged the re-emergence of Roman Catholic missions like the Alamo that had expired or the immigration of priests. At one point, the whole area of east Texas had only two priests. Incoming Protestant missionaries, meanwhile, were beaten, imprisoned, and forced to re-emigrate. A “Pine-Tree Curtain” from the Red to the Sabine appeared. Would Texas become something like Revolutionary France, an extreme realization of the so-called Enlightenment?
