Title of Series: “Eastside Stories”

 

Cindy Elizabeth’s new docu-series explores the lives and legacies of black and brown Austinites who have called East Austin their home. Throughout this series, Cindy documents the stories of these individuals by highlighting their day-to-day activities in a part of town with a  constant-changing landscape as a result of gentrification and displacement.

 

The series will premiere at allgo on Friday, September the 29th. The first episode features Bettie Mann, the first black teacher at Lee Elementary here in Austin, Tx.

 

Cindy is an East Austin native who, through this project, hopes to explore the lives of people who have stood in the center of East Austin, giving it the rich culture and history it has today.

Bettie Meshack Mann Dedication at Lee Elementary

Thursday, December 8th has been officially declared "Bettie Meshack Mann" day in the City of Austin. Mrs. Mann is such a beautiful person with a big, loving heart. I was honored to spend so much time with her, following her around for a whole week and taking photos. Her life is so full and dynamic.

"We're celebrating Mrs. Mann at 6 p.m. with a program (speakers include Mrs. Mann herself, Vice President of the AISD Board of Trustees Paul Saldaña, and former Mayor Pro Tem Sheryl Cole, among others), a reception, and the unveiling of "The Gift," Cindy Elizabeth's extraordinary portrait of Mrs. Mann.
