In his book, Militarizing the Border: When Mexicans Became the Enemy, author Miguel Levario told the history of militarized conflict between Mexico and the United States along the Texan border.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2018 LCV Cities Tour” in Lubbock, Texas, from May 5-11, to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Altice cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on Book TV on C-SPAN2.
