The Yates House at Sam Houston Park in Houston, Texas. In 1870, five short years after emancipation, Jack Yates, a freed slave, began construction of his home. The Jack Yates House reflects the opportunity for growth and prosperity which existed for the black population in Houston. The Rev. Yates was one of the most prominent religious leaders in Houston and a true advocate of education for his race in the post-Civil War period. Photograph taken on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2009.
