Another day in court for Death Row's Tim Howard

The 1998 capital case against Tim Howard from Little River County has long drawn our attention in reporting by Mara Leveritt, most recently in her account of huge problems with DNA tests conducted for the case (and covered up by the state).

March 29, Howard's attorneys will ask the Arkansas Supreme Court — previously deeply divided on the question of whether the case against Howard had been made — for a new trial in the racially tinged case.

Howard's case is drawing wider attention. The video is a project of Philander Smith College's social justice initiative (we will miss President Walter Kimbrough, heading to Dillard University in New Orleans, who gave rise to the initiative.) And also, a petition drive has begun for Howard. The link will take you to others about the case.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
