Only 15 miles southeast of downtown Dallas sits a small ex-Freedman's town named Sand Branch. Founded in the 1880's by former slaves it is a remnant of the past that is still grasping for recognition and basic rights. For decades the residents there have survived without clean running water, sewage or trash services, schools, or grocery stores. With a population remaining of 60, including 6 children, they are forced to survive on donated bottled water or home made wells. The groundwater has been recently tested to be highly toxic, laden with heavy metals. Quietly they live, doing what they can to get by. Ongoing project.
