Riding Through Compton
According to the US Census Bureau, one-third of the population of Compton, California are under the age of 18—one-fourth of its population live at or below the poverty line. Despite the latter statistic, Compton has been home to significant athletes, musicians, scientists, writers, and pioneering public officials. Over decades young people have found a way to overcome the socioeconomic odds against them when their life begins in this city.
For the last thirty years, the streets of Compton have been the stomping grounds of a youth riding and equestrian program under the leadership of Mayisha Akbar. Designed to provide the kids of Compton with meaningful year-round after-school activities, members not only learn to ride, but to care for their horses—developing responsibility, discipline, and self-esteem.
Riding Through Compton pairs three years of documentary photographs and formal portraits by Melodie McDaniel interviews by Amelia Fleetwood conducted with participants, guardians, and volunteers involved with the Compton Junior Posse.
