Manning M. Mott interview
- Main contributor
Manning M. Mott discusses the different reactions of white residents to the Black residents moving into Riverside. Mott discusses the change in the quality of city services once Riverside became a predominantly Black neighborhood. Mott discusses how the demographics of the Third Ward are changing. Mott says the transition of Riverside from having majority-white residents to having majority Black residents was violent, contrary to popular opinion. He says the presence of the KKK was felt, and the Houston Police Department was a threatening presence in the community, falsely imprisoning Black residents.
