Narrator's name Seaward, Tiffany
Interviewer Larson, Jenny
Scope & Content Tiffany Seaward discusses her childhood growing up in north and south Austin in the 1980s-90s; she talks about race relations in her schools, discrimination she faced from other students for being white, and everyday life in the neighborhoods she grew up in. She also talks about the gentrification and growth Austin is undergoing, and how rising property taxes have negatively affected her, middle and working class people, and people of color.

This interview is part of an oral history project, Conversations to Create Unity, conducted by the Susanna Dickinson Museum and funded by Baylor University's Institute of Oral History. The project features fifteen oral histories from a diverse group of lifelong Austinites. Their interviews communicate race relations as a shared human experience and present a productive dialog about race in Austin, Texas.
