Sunnyside 

Houston, Texas

Our First Community of Focus 

Sunnyside is a historically Black neighborhood in south Houston, set up for Black people in 1912 by a white councilman as the other segregated neighborhoods in the city center grew crowded. The city of Houston didn’t annex it until 1956. In the 1960s, Sunnyside had so many Black-owned businesses that residents called a stretch of Cullen Boulevard “Black Wall Street.” By the end of the 1980s, most of the businesses had shuttered.

Leaving the neighborhood to become a desert economically
