Event description
What was Tyler like when Earl Campbell was getting his start?

About this Event

Earl Campbell was a force in American football, winning a state championship in high school, rushing his way to a Heisman trophy for the University of Texas, and earning MVP as he took the Houston Oilers to the brink of the Super Bowl. An exhilarating blend of biography and history, this new book chronicles the challenges and sacrifices one supremely gifted athlete faced in his journey to the Hall of Fame.

The story begins in Tyler, Texas, featuring his indomitable mother, a crusading judge, and a newly integrated high school. Join The Tyler Loop editor Tasneem Raja in conversation with Austin-based reporter Asher Price about his new book, which explores how Campbell and his family navigated complex issues of race and history in Tyler and beyond.
