Gina Houston discusses growing up in east Austin, Texas in the 1970s and 80s in a politically active family, and people's perceptions and treatment of her as an African American, middle class child. She also talks about misconceptions about east Austin and its inhabitants, the gentrification and rising property taxes in east Austin, negative relations between law enforcement and minorities in Austin, and navigating in an Anglo world.

This interview is part of an oral history project, Conversations to Create Unity, conducted by the Susanna Dickinson Museum and funded by Baylor University's Institute of Oral History. The project features fifteen oral histories from a diverse group of lifelong Austinites. Their interviews communicate race relations as a shared human experience and present a productive dialog about race in Austin, Texas.
