Fired director rehired at Mosaic Templars museum

DIRECTORS BACK: At Mosaic Templars Cultural Center.
  • DIRECTOR'S BACK: At Mosaic Templars Cultural Center.

Offhand, I can't recall anything quite like this. Maybe you can. The director of a state agency is fired (performance-related, allegedly). A special interest group — several of them, actually, including the Black Legislative Caucus — protests. The governor intervenes. The director is rehired.

The Times' Leslie Newell Peacock has, on her Eye Candy Blog, all the details on the firing and rehiring of H.L. McGill as director of the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the state-run museum at Ninth and Broadway about the black experience in Arkansas. His defenders dispute criticism of his earlier performance as director of the museum.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
