Yates High School CAMERA Project
This proposal is for a collaborative project with the students of photography at the Third Ward's historic Jack Yates high school, teacher Mr. Ray Carrington, members of the Third Ward Community and a grass roots environmental justice group, TEJAS. The students will capture images of Third Ward environmental risks and, through various methods of community engagement, will share these pictures to engage in a community conversation about environmental justice in the Third Ward and how it has impacted health and general quality of life. Data profiles will be compiled for each photographic site to begin to develop trends and draw conclusions about the causes and effects of environmental threats. The images and findings will be shared with the broader community, including the media and local government representatives, to begin to clarify the environmental issues facing the neighborhood and work toward strategies that will preclude the recurrence of environmental injustice in the future - for the Third Ward and the many other struggling communities of color across Houston.
