Description This is an oral history interview with Angel Z. Fraga conducted as part of the Houston History Project. The Felix Fraga Sr. came to Houston over a century ago. His six sons, known as the “Fraga Six,” have gone from poor, humble beginnings to serve their nation and their city in the military, in elected office, on the bench, and in business. Although Angel Z. Fraga served as a municipal court judge and county criminal court judge, this interview focuses on the Fraga family. It details their experiences growing in up in Houston, the schools they attended, discrimination they faced, various jobs they held, the brothers’ military service in the Army Navy and Air Force. They also were victims of the TB epidemic that struck Houston in the 1930s. Although, the Fragas lost one family member and others underwent treatment, they did not suffer nearly as some of their neighbors who lost multiple family members. He also discusses life in the Second Ward, businesses there, and neighbors and friends like Ninfa Laurenzo. Angel Fraga passed away in 2014, about a year after this interview was completed.
