Arts in Transit Elgin / Third Ward

Elgin / Third Ward platform

The Elgin/Third Ward Station pays tribute to the emancipation and rise of African Americans in Texas. The artwork features Norris Wright Cuney (1846-1898), who became the first African American politician in the state, and was chosen as the Texas National Committeeman of the Republican Party in 1886 – the most important political position given to a black man of the South in the nineteenth century.
