Pigeon Hill Portraits: Then and Now


Angie Rice, Pigeon Hill, 1990
"I always went barefoot in those days. I was 13 or 14. I was a troublemaker—on probation for skipping school. I'd stop at Tri-North Middle School, pick up money from kids who wanted cigarettes, take the bus to the mall and shoplift. I got pregnant at 15. I knew I wanted better. I looked for a boyfriend to get me off the Hill.

Angie Rice, Lenzy Hayes Trailer Park, Ellettsville, 2011
"In 2000, I got the Holy Ghost. I had been looking at different Pentecostal churches where they talk in tongues. Then I did some time in jail. I'm on home detention now. I started up again at the church. I haven't cut my hair in 17 years. It was easier being a bad teenager. I see myself as happier now."
