LaToya Ruby Frazier is in Houston today working with the students of Jack Yates High School’s photography magnet program. The school is located in the Third Ward, a historically African American neighborhood. In 2013 Katharine Shilcutt of the Houston Press observed that “the Third Ward possesses a dynamic mix of old and new as the area slowly undergoes a slow gentrification process: beautiful brick homes abutting wonderfully divey restaurants like Chief Cajun Snack Shack, 80-year-old meat markets turned into vegan coffee shops, non-profit arts organizations such as Project Row Houses side-by-side with still-occupied row houses.”
The Yates photography students spent the day documenting evidence of the gentrification of their community, and an exhibition of the resulting artworks will be on view in CAMH’s Cullen Education Resource Room, September 1 - October 13, 2013, in tandem with Frazier’s show.
The above photos were taken by our interns, who joined Frazier and the students on the neighborhood tour.
