A Taste of Houston, Texas

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT HOUSTON?

  1. Houston is the fourth-largest city in the United States of America and the largest city in the state of Texas. As of the 2009 U.S. Census estimate, the city had a population of 2.3 million.

  2. By 1910, Houston's population had reached 78,800, almost doubling from a decade before. An integral part of the city were African Americans, who numbered 23,929 or nearly one-third of the residents.They were developing a strong professional class based then in the Fourth Ward.

  3. Since the 1990s, as a result of the recession, Houston has made efforts to diversify its economy by focusing on aerospace and health care/biotechnology and by reducing its dependence on the petroleum industry. In 1997, Houstonians elected Lee P. Brown as the city's first African American mayor.

  4. Many annual events celebrate the diverse cultures of Houston. The largest and longest running is the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, held over 20 days from late February to early March, which happens to be the largest annual Livestock Show and Rodeo anywhere in the world. Another large celebration is the annual night-time Houston Pride Parade, held at the end of June. Other annual events include the Houston Greek Festival, Art Car Parade, the Houston Auto Show, the Houston International Festival, and the Bayou City Art Festival, which is considered to be one of the top five art festivals in the United States.

  5. Venues across Houston regularly host local and touring hip hop, rock, blues, country, dubstep, and Tejano musical acts. While Houston has never been a widely renowned for its music scene, Houston hip-hop has become a significant, independent music scene, influencing some larger Southern hip hop and gangsta rap communities. Houston is also the home of chopped and screwed music.

  6. Prominent artists from Houston include pop and R&B group Destiny's Child. Houston also had fledgling blues and folk scenes in the sixties and seventies. Notable blues performers included Lightnin' Hopkins, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, "Texas" Johnny Brown, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Albert Collins, Johnny Copeland, and Joe "Guitar" Hughes; many of whom recorded with hometown music label Peacock Records.

  7. Houston's murder rate ranked 46th of U.S. cities with a population over 250,000 in 2005 (per capita rate of 16.3 murders per 100,000 population). Houston has experienced a significant rise in crime, which the Houston Police Department partly attributed to an influx of people from New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Houston, due to its size and proximity to major illegal drug exporting nations, is a significant hub for trafficking of cocaine, marijuana, heroin, MDMA, and methamphetamine.

  8. Within the Houston's historic Third Ward community is Texas Southern University (TSU). Founded in 1927, it is a historically black four-year university with a pharmacy school and the Thurgood Marshall School of Law.

  9. During the summer months, it is common for the temperature to reach over 90 °F, with an average of 99 days per year above 90 °F. Winters in Houston are fairly temperate. The average high in January, the coldest month, is 62 °F, while the average low is 39 °F. Snowfall is generally rare. Houston receives a high amount of rainfall annually, averaging about 54 inches a year. These rains tend to cause floods over portions of the city.

Prince Hall Shriners award Scholarships, donate to Local Community Organizations

HOUSTON – The Desert of Texas, Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine (Prince Hall Shriners) held its Public Program at the Westin Oaks Houston, April 7.

The Prince Hall Shriners, in partnership with their auxiliary, the Daughters of the Imperial Court, sponsor the annual event, which serves as a venue to award monetary scholarships and donations to worthy community-based organizations in the host city.

Two high school students were the recipients of two $1,100 scholarships: Branaun Galentine of Phyllis Wheatley Sr. High School and Hannah Johnson of Stephen Austin Sr. High School in Sugar Land.

Additionally during the program, the Desert of Texas provided monetary and in-kind donations to the YWCA, U.S. Dream Academy, KIPP Academy, and the Buffalo Soldiers.

The guest speaker for the event was Chief Vera Bumpers, Metro Police Department. Bumpers has served with the Metro Police Department for more than 30 years and is the first woman to be promoted in every rank within the department.

Also in attendance was the City Councilman Dwight Boykins, who welcomed the Desert of Texas to the city.

On Saturday, the Desert of Texas will visit KIPP Academy and host their annual Deputies Ball at the Westin Oak Houston.

The Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine’s (AEAONMS) purpose is to promote charity and benevolence throughout its communities. The organization has fostered the following programs: a collaborative partnership effort with the American Diabetes Association and St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital; Shriners As Mentors Program; annual educational grants for economically deprived youths; a program of financial aid to youth in their fight against drugs, crime and delinquency; support summer camps for youth; voter education and registration drives; and annual grants to the NAACP, the Legal Defense Fund, and the United Negro College Fund.

The Daughters of the Imperial Court, an auxiliary of the AEAONMS, is a charitable and benevolent organization which stresses the development of powerful leaders, encourages health awareness among youth and adults, provides services to help disabled and senior citizens and demonstrates positive influence for youth, teenage mothers, high school and college student. The Daughters of the Imperial Court also disseminates information for education opportunities and career planning to youth and young adults. Some of the specific program initiatives include: education and scholarship, book bags and schools supplies for adopted schools, volunteer activities, and annual financial donations to the United Negro College Fund, Health and Medical Research, American Cancer Society, Mental Retardation, NAACP, HIV/AIDS Awareness, and the American Diabetes Association.
