Re: “Editor's Note

I remember being in the area all the time bFORE gentrification. Our great grands, cousins, teachers (from Dunbar They had to transfer to keep their jobs ). The churches in the area, Lim Nuey's grocery store, Mrs Kraft's beauty shop. African American history is forgotten and has been thrown away

Re: “Terrific Civil Rights-era Photojournalism at the Etherton Gallery

Our cousin James Meredith integrated Ole Miss~~as children growing up in Tucson the television coverage of these events in the South were shockingly vivid. Perhaps it meant more knowing our family was somehow involved....MUST go view this

Re: “Historic Effort

Yes this history should be preserved, although this being Arizona I doubt that will occur. We grew up knowing the Maxwell family one that we were proud of. The history of AAs in Arizona continues to be erased each decade and soon will be forgotton. The Tucson Community Center demolished Black businesses in the heart of Tucson; there were boarding houses, barber shops, dry cleaners, a myriad of commercial enterprises. Whatever chance there may have been for AAs to reinvest, Grijalva ruined it by insisting on having the sports complex on Ajo. C'est la vie
