Austin, Texas is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. But amidst this transformation, a long-neglected part of town struggles with the legacy of racial discrimination.

In Displaced, Not Erased, the Austin American-Statesman investigates the company that quietly bought up over 114 parcels along and around the East 12th street corridor and painted over the Mama Sana mural. In their first on-camera interview, Eureka Holdings explains their intentions as majority stakeholder of this historically black community.
