VOX POPULI Giving Back With Style

Sydney and Ruben Caballero are a brand new husband-and-wife team, and the founders of the new Houston Heights-based t-shirt line, Vox Populi (voks pop-yuh-lahy), which is Latin for “voice of the people”. The couple was inspired by the pain and division they saw in the world around them, and they wanted to find a way to spread love and positivity, while giving back to communities in need. From this, they created their line of inspirational clothing.

Houston's Lost History:
The Downtown Flood of 1935

People tend to forget we live in a swamp. Houston wasn't considered very habitable until the invention of air conditioning. We used to lead the nation in cases of yellow fever and cholera, and we had frequent cases of malaria well into the 50's. The large number of bayous has been a constant source of flooding, the Flood Control District starting converting the bayous in the 1950's from muddy rivers to the managed culverts you see today.

The Fifth Ward has a turbulent past. For decades it has been synonymous with crime and violence, earning it the monikers Little Pearl Harbor and the Bloody Fifth.

But the Fifth Ward wasn't always a crime plagued neighborhood that was ignored or feared by the outside world. Read the full article>>

   

Houston's Lost History: Camp Logan Race Riots
The early fall of 1917 was one of the darkest times in Houston's history. World War One was raging in Europe and the United States was beginning to ship thousands of soldiers overseas. Our governor, James “Pa” Ferguson had just been removed from office for embezzlement. The city was reeling from the sudden death of our first Hispanic mayor Joseph Pastoriza. Pastoriza had been in office less than three months before suddenly dying of a heart attack. His successor, Joseph Hutcheson, had been in office barely two months when the bloodiest day in Houston's history occurred.

Houston's Lost History: 1867 Yellow Fever Epidemic

Houston's Medical Center is one of the most impressive and respected facilities of its type in the world. Between UTMB, M.D. Anderson, Texas Children's Hospital and many more hospitals we are at the forefront of medical science. However Houston's position on the Gulf of Mexico and it's location surrounded by bayous meant Houston was once home to many diseases that are unknown here today. In the last century Space City was hit by episodes of cholera, malaria and yellow fever. In 1867 our susceptibility to tropical disease killed a tenth of the population.

Houston's Lost History: Great Fifth Ward Fire of 1912
When you think of disasters and Houston the first thing that comes to mind is of course hurricanes. We don't earthquakes, and being as flat as we are mudslides are impossible.
