For his Landscape and Memory class's digital humanities requirement, Courtney Fisk designed a website dedicated to a group of hometown heroes and locations close to his heart; UGK, and Port Arthur, Texas.

Courtney had this to say:

"Port Arthur, Texas is the home to many celebrities including, but not limited to, Janis Joplin, Jimmy Johnson, and Evelyn Keyes. Although they are very recognized celebrities, the local history has only chosen to focus on the contributions of those in the white or middle class community while leaving out very important facts of many people and places. This website is dedicated to the little known history of the city’s historic places and its celebrities in the black community."
