Pine Street, Juneteenth top city board meeting

Tuesday’s outcry for changing the name of Pine Street wasn’t the first time the discussion has surfaced. Henry Wilson, who died earlier this year, was an outspoken figure when it came to honoring King in Arkadelphia. In 2004, he chained himself to the I-30 MLK Overpass until he was given media attention over his wanting to change the entire street’s name, not just the overpass.
