Lawrence Hamilton
, the musical director for opera star Jessye Norman who returned to his native Arkansas to direct choral activities at Philander Smith, has died. 

Tributes on Hamilton's Facebook page say Hamilton, who was inducted into the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame and the Arkansas Entertainers Hall of Fame for his career, died as the result of a gastrointestinal blood clot. A caller says he died during surgery in New York City.

Hamilton had just completed a run of "The Piano Lesson" at the Cape Fear Regional Theater in North Carolina.

I'll post more when we know more.

  • 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.
