This morning, my friend Wyshina Harris was murdered. Another senseless killing in our city.
I will always remember when Wyshina lived in Turner Courts and we talked about how she was constantly going up to HS Thompson School to make sure her children got a good education.
- My friend and former co-worker, Wyshina Harris, was killed yesterday morning.Just two weeks ago Wyshina was calling me, so excited that she had been able to cast a vote for an African-American president. It was her I posted about here. As I was standing in shock and awe as 6000 people around me cheered, it was Wyshina who called as soon as the announcement that Barack Obama had been named our president.
Wyshina Harris, was a remarkable woman.
I say ‘was’ because she was murdered this morning in a senseless act of violence.
Wyshina was a part of our team at Central Dallas Ministries who worked in the Turner Courts Public Housing development until this summer until program cuts and Dallas Housing Authority’s decision to rebuild the development caused us to cut staff and move to another location. Even then she showed a beautiful spirit of dedication to the organization and most importantly to the community.
Last Saturday morning at about 7:00 a.m., Wyshina Harris, our dear friend and former team member here at Central Dallas Ministries was gunned down on her way to work. A wonderful person, a great mom, a hard working community leader, Wyshina Harris was murdered in cold blood on her way to work.
When she worked with us here at CDM, she provided wonderful direction for the children in our After School Academy located in Turner Courts, a Dallas Housing Authority development where she lived for a time.
