HOPE Farm (Ft. Worth Campus)

HOPE Farm is a long-term leadership development program that guides at-risk boys, without the benefit of a positive male role model in their homes, from the time they are 5-7 years old until high school graduation and beyond.

During this stop, participants will go on a walking tour of the Fort Worth Morningside Campus, which began as an abandoned crack house and has evolved into a center with classrooms, a garden, playground, and recreation facilities.


Kinfolk House

Kinfolk House is a collaborative project space that inhabits a 100-year-old historic home, where community and art converge in the predominantly Black and Latina/e/o neighborhood of Polytechnic in Fort Worth, Texas. Our goal is to uplift the beauty, talent, and culture of Polytechnic and feed its creativity by offering collaborative exhibitions, events, and educational opportunities. Through partnerships with community-minded creatives and project-based artists, we will build outside the preconceived ideas of “what art is,” exploring the intersections of life, cultural pursuits, and artistry.

Sedrick and Letitia Huckaby, both internationally renowned artists, opened the doors of this historic space reimagined on the cornerstone of the creative power of Sedrick’s grandmother and original homeowner, Hallie Beatrice Carpenter, known to her friends and neighbors as, “Big Momma.” Her legacy inspires our understanding that creative pursuits exist beyond high art and academia.

During this stop, participants will be taken on a tour of the house and grounds and be able to view the current art project that brings together three artists: one local, one Texas-based artist working outside of North Texas, and one artist working outside of the state.


The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District (Lunch)

One of the oldest attractions in Texas, the Fort Worth Stockyards celebrates Fort Worth’s long tradition as part of the cattle industry. Visitors come to the Stockyards to get a taste of American Western heritage with its historic buildings and walkways, museums, saloons, rodeos, and it’s twice-a-day cattle drive.

During this stop, participants will have the opportunity to grab lunch and explore this historic area.
