Hey y’all! I’m Javier, a Native Austinite with deep roots in the state. My family has been in the Austin area for almost 200 years. We arrived here as enslaved African people when Texas was still a part of Mexico in the early 1830s.

My love for history and my community has led me to my current position. I am a PhD student at The University of Texas at Austin, Hook’em Horns! In my research, looking through the lens of sport, I explore how race, class, gender and migration impact educational access, attainment and outcomes in different communities across the globe.

When traveling, we pick a few activities that center around learning about a communities history. This was a great tour for that. Javier presented information about history and philosophical decisions that were made regarding the community’s past. This was objective, but peppered with some cultural undertones that added flavor and perspective. Javier is very knowledgeable about the history of black and brown people and history as a whole, which helped add some amazing narrative. Highly recommend the tour and taking what you learn from him and doing the research yourself about your own community.

This tour was great. Javier did an excellent job of weaving personal history into the history of Black Austin. Our tour was the first stop on our trip, and it gave us excellent perspective for the rest of our stay in Austin. He was very personable and knowledgeable.

Wonderful opportunity to learn about the history, experiences and contributions of Black folks to the City of Austin. Javier was really knowledgeable and told the story in a wider and more global context. He has a particular passion for the City and its history. I was only in Austin for two days and this tour broadened my perspective on this city. I highly recommend this tour.

Javier was an excellent guide! He was punctual, knowledgeable, and well organized. We could tell he planned out the structure of the tour in advance, and there was plenty of context provided alongside the anchoring dates and sites. Given his own rich family history and ties to the city, he honestly should charge more for this experience. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a richer experience of Austin.
