The Houston Informer and Texas Freeman newspaper first hit the streets in 1893. The newspaper became the hub of a multi-city chain chronicling newsmakers for Black communities in Houston, Dallas, Galveston, Huntsville, Beaumont, Austin, New Orleans and greater East Texas.--unifying the communities they served. By the 1950s, the paper became a major player in advancing the call for civil rights for citizens of African descent.
25% of proceeds raised will benefit the "STEPPIN' BACK IN TIME" traveling photo exhibits and historical preservation projects of this 130 year old newspaper that chronicled the history of African Americans in Texas.
Caring for the Founders...

This cemetery is where the bodies of the Rosenwald School founders and primary caregivers are buried. 50% of donations raised will help repair the overgrown 1/4 mile access trail from Rosenwall Road to the Cemetery gate; renovate the headstones and purchase headstones for folk who are missing one. The project also helps re-purpose the old Rosenwald School grounds for an earth-friendly, zero-emission, atmospheric water generated, solar-powered multigenerational community space!
