This is an oral history interview with Felix Fraga conducted as part of the Houston History Project. This interview with Felix Fraga starts with the story of Felix Fraga Sr. coming from Mexico to the United States through Eagle Pass, Texas, to start a new life in the Second Ward of Houston. From there come the amazing stories of each of the six Fraga sons, the “Fraga Six,” who worked hard to use the opportunities their parents had given them to reach move up in the social strata. At one point Felix explains that people thought the Fraga boys were great because they never got into trouble. Felix explained that he and his brother never joined local gangs but, instead, succeeded. Through the support of the community centers like the Rusk Settlement House and activities like sports, these six boys were able to leave their neighborhood, to learn and grow, and to bring their new ideas to their community. Interviewer: Emily Chambers.
