This chapter analyzes the changing face of race relations in Texas. It asks: How was it possible for Texans—and indeed for much of the country—to imagine that race relations had become so accommodating for all concerned in 1936? Was it the result of a kind of dual consciousness in which people knew deep down that the situation left much to be desired but on the surface wanted to put on a good appearance for anyone who might be watching—and they hoped the world was watching and thinking well of Texas? Or was it that the Texas Centennial Exposition celebrated significant changes that had taken place over the past century and even over the past half century—changes that nearly everyone regarded as about the best anyone could hope for, but which also reflected the fact that race relations still had a long way to go?
