Dallas South Rewind – Dallas Morning News Edition
I haven’t done it as much recently, but Dallas South Rewind was once a weekly feature where I highlighted 5 articles on the weekend that I wasn’t able to share during the week. Today, I’m using all five postings from one source – a first for Dallas South. I’ve been critical of the Dallas Morning News on this site on many occasions, but I have to take a moment to highlight some nice articles to appear recently in our local rag.
- Gromer Jeffers writes an article regarding a Gospel Music Preservation Project underway at Baylor University
- The Dallas Morning News Editorial Board wrote a piece in Sunday’s paper calling a potential NAACP presidency for Dr. Frederick Haynes a win-win for Dallas.
- Jeffrey Weiss lends some perspective from the Brite School of Theology Black Church Summit.
- Scott Farwell starts a series reflecting on race relations in Dallas 40 years after the assassination of Martin Luther King. The centerpiece is a set of hedges that once divided a neighborhood by race.
- Barrie Page Hill tells us about a black owned hotel in Grand Prairie – Steen’s Motel. They still have a rotary dial pay phone.
