A message last night from Demetria Edwards, a Lake Village lawyer:
History was made tonight at the Lake Village City Council Meeting. Tonight the Council unanimously voted to grant our petition to change the name of Confederate Street to Sgt. Thomas Armour Jr. Street. I am so proud of our City Council as they have taken an historic step towards healing and uniting our community and honoring an amazing patriot and a compassionate servant leader.
We wrote earlier about Edwards’ effort to rename the street — all of whose residents are black — after a Vietnam war veteran from Lake Village.
