BROTHERS AND SISTERS,
FRIENDS AND ENEMIES . . .
The Historical Underground is an organization and a movement. We promote awareness and education for students about the nature of history and its central importance for understanding the world we live in and are a part of. History prepares us to participate actively in our society and the world at large. By confronting the past with courage, we can come to better understand the present, which means history is an indispensable part of our society as a whole. In order to harness your power in life, you must start by taking control over your past. There are so many lessons to be learned from history, and The Historical Underground is here for them all! Join the cause and make history a more meaning part of your life.
Notes from the Underground is our publication, a historical pamphlet of sorts, that we create, produce, and disseminate each Fall and Spring semester across the Southeast campus of Tarrant County College in Arlington, Texas. This website serves as an archive of all our past editions. The publication features articles written by faculty and students over a diverse array of interesting, important, and/or controversial historical topics that are designed to introduce themes, concepts, ideas, or events/processes to readers so as to inspire them to learn more and research on their own. It also functions as an outlet through which to promote the interests and missions of The Historical Underground, which is Southeast campus' sole (and soul) historical organization.
In a way, then, The Historical Underground is our vehicle for action, and Notes from the Underground is our mouthpiece for knowledge, information, and action. History is our weapon of choice, which we use to instill a life-long passion for the humanities in the minds of those who read our version of it and participate in this powerful initiative to bring history alive in the community.
