More About The Film

Despite public relations about Houston’s demographic diversity, segregation and poverty continue to be significant challenges for residents of the City’s low-income neighborhoods of color. According to the Houston Museum of African American Culture the lack of resources in these neighborhoods has stifled the accumulation of cultural capital required to empower them. When the Museum with a history of extensive community interaction ran out of buildings to create its neighborhood message murals, it turned to artist Ronald Llewellyn Jones to create public art that would continue its efforts to create a sense of empowerment and pride in Houston neighborhoods characterized by segregation and high levels of poverty.
