To any and all interested Houstonians!
One of my dreams, for this Great Metropolis, is a collection of statues of famous Houstonians.
Howard Hughes; Glenn McCarthy; Oveta Culp Hobby...etc.
One particular great among our historical figures was the Rev. Jack Yates...a freed slave who did much to aid in Reconstruction Houston: establishment of the Antioch Baptist Church; The purchase and gifting to the city of Emancipation Park.
A good friend of mine is a very talented artist...especially in portrait busts and statues. She works in Shanghai,China,but has lived, worked, and taught in Houston. Jenny Xie.
Jenny has Just completed her first study for a statue of Jack Yates for Houston. Here are photos.
I am hoping to find interested individuals or organizations which could come together to fund this project. Would love to interact with other interested Houstonians.
P.S. I live in China, very close to this amazing artist. I could help expedite this project.
Monolith appeared on Awty International School grounds. It's by 610 and i-10 near Ikea. Unfortunately it's private school grounds.

VOTE RED ….SAVE THE CHILDREN
so why is it that houston being her home town the mayor has not addressed the family.. Its sad that her hometown has not done more for her..
Yes I get so tired of seeing people with no mask. It says you can't now go in business without mask yet Kroger 1960 FM and HEB by Telge Rd I think you should fine them $1000.00 for every person found in any business and 500 hrs community service for non mask wearers
You, Sir, are the biggest of hypocrites. It's ok if BLM wants to protest and riot with no covid protection, but it's not ok to celebrate the 4th of July in person with family and friends. And as for the abominable pride celebration...since you want to "give all glory to God" (Your words at that criminal's funeral) Please read Proverbs 16:18. Nothing about you is godly in any way. But one thing is for sure. You will stand before a Holy and Righteous God on judgement day. May God have mercy on your soul.
Thank you Sir.
Until the Houston police department fires the officer who they KNOW broke my shoulder AND the other one who watched AND pay to repair my shoulder ALL COPS CAN ROT IN HELL
United Airlines hanger personnel (including my 2nd white husband) Central Park Karened me for trying to get my husband to go to his neurological appointment after he was diagnosed with medically induced dementia and ran away from home. Their phone call to the police on October 8, 2017 resulted in a cop breaking my shoulder, (which is STILL BROKEN) in front of witnesses including my children and sent me to jail for 78 hours. I ALSO lost my children because of it.
My now EX HUSBAND Patrick Breslin STILL works there as a mechanic WITH DEMENTIA AND THEY KNOW IT BECAUSE I PERSONALLY SENT THE DOCTOR'S DIAGNOSIS to corporate AND his direct managers.
Houston Show Choir seeks to serve our community with diversity and song. The latest "isolation video" released today is "When Love Takes Over". It is our gift to Houston.
Mayor Turner I have a question for you sir. How are you letting the chief of police go on national news speaking out against the president of the United States and insulting him. And allowing him to disobey drink orders from the Texas governor and you Mayor Turner. And allowing him to hold his office and not accountable for what he says. I just seen a news report where he is inciting a riot by all accounts by telling protesters that " His people built this country his people are not going nowhere and if we don't like it then too bad" please Mayor Turner I please plead with you give that man out of office with no benefits no pension at all. Because if he was in the service he would be put in jail and discharge from the service. He says hatred is not welcome in this city well sir he is preaching hatred and my book. This is the people's country this is the people state and this is the people's City. Bring him up on investigation take him out of the office.
