Scope & Content Rob Rowland recalls his childhood and teenage years (1990s-2000s) living in south Austin, Texas, and his current studies in theater at Texas State University. He talks about discrimination and misunderstanding he faced as a Latino bilingual public school student, directing bilingual plays, and the gentrification and growth he has seen in Austin over the years.

This interview is part of an oral history project, Conversations to Create Unity, conducted by the Susanna Dickinson Museum and funded by Baylor University's Institute of Oral History. The project features fifteen oral histories from a diverse group of lifelong Austinites. Their interviews communicate race relations as a shared human experience and present a productive dialog about race in Austin, Texas.
